Greetings from the Pacific Northwest.

I live in historic Jacksonville, in the beautiful Rogue Valley of southern Oregon, surrounded by mountains. Jacksonville was a mid-19th century boom town, the site of the 1852 Oregon Gold Rush, and today it is steeped in rich and colorful history. The town is a thriving community of people who all enjoy living in an architecturally picturesque National Historic Landmark.

For more than 40 years I traveled the world as an opera and concert soloist and there is plenty of information on this website about that, via the links on the sidebar to the left. I've been truly blessed with life of music.

At the Carmel Bach Festival in California, I served for 30 seasons as performer, Dramaturge, Lecturer, and Director of the Vocal Master Class for young professional singers.

Carmel Impresarios, a book I published in 2014, tells the story of the two extraordinary women who helped make Carmel an artistic hot spot in the 1920s and 1930s, and founded the Carmel Bach Festival in 1935.

In 2017 I published The LIttle Bach Book., about Bach's daily life in the 18th Century. More info

In my parallel career, I spend my hours strapped to an acoustic guitar and singing my heart out. You can check that out here. And I'm part of the living history programs in historic Jacksonville Oregon. More info.

In 2011 I co-founded Lucky Valley Press with my wife, Ginna Gordon. We provide high-end individualized design, publishing, and consulting services for indie authors who want their print books and ebooks to be published their way.
