Lead, 5 year member of the Toronto Accolades
Since an early age, I have enjoyed singing. At an early age I joined the church choir and also was in both the Junior and Senior band during high school.
Before joining the Toronto Accolades, I sang with The Thousand Islanders for several years when I lived in the Brockville area. They say once you sing barbershop you are hooked, and that I was. When I moved to Toronto, I tried a few other groups, but nothing compares to those barbershop chords.
Since joining the Toronto Accolades, I have served on the board as Ways & Means, President and, currently, VP Current Members. I also serve on the International Board as Music Coordinator. In November of 2018, I am excited and honoured to be taking over as Area 5 director.
I have two wonderful grown children and two wonderful grandchildren. My son, Chris, and his beautiful wife, Sandra, have blessed us with two amazing grandchildren, Emma and Owen. They make my heart smile. My daughter, Amanda, and her wonderful partner, Hala, have just moved to Barrie. My significant other, Mark, is so supportive of my barbershop hobby and is always there to lend a helping hand whenever the Accolades need some man power.
In addition to singing I also enjoy bowling and various crafts which keep me busy.
