Professor of cello, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV. Cello teacher, Interlochen Arts Camp. Formerly principal cellist, Ohio Valley Symphony; member Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Baltimore Symphony String Quartet; faculty, University of Maryland. I'm active in both the resident Piano Quartet with our faculty at WVU and in a trio with my wife, Dorothy (Hubbard) and pianist Carol Beall. Dorothy and I have had two sons—Robert, age 33 and Daniel, age 29. Bob teaches sciences for a private school and Dan is finishing a DMA in violin at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. I still enjoy performing (and golfing) very much, and my career has been exactly what I wanted to do.
