Finally I "settled" in Nashua, NH and graduated from Rivier College in 1994, with a Degree in Communications.
By then I had begun teaching guitar, and after graduating, I chose teaching as my full-time occupation. I’m always trying new things. I use my extended range (bass & guitar) Novax, 8-string, fanned-fret, Charlie Hunter style guitar (shown left) for playing jazz songs. I can play lead, rhythm and bass all at once, to sound like three instruments.
I currently live in the Birch Hill area of Nashua, NH, with my wife, Bobbie, a software engineer who also finds time to play jazz and classical violin. She also studies tap, ballet and jazz dance at the Dancing Corner in Nashua.
We now have a yellow Labrador puppy named 'Django' after the jazz guitarist, Django Reinhartd. Sadly, our beloved German Shepherd, Miles - named after the great Miles Davis - passed into doggie heaven, on March 31, 2011, at the age of 12. Miles was an exceptional dog but Django, despite his mischievous thievery, is a bundle of fun.
