I began my calling career in 1977 at the age of 15. Under the guidance of Dewey Hart who, as publisher of Cue’s and Tips, sponsored his first dance. I attended several of Cal Golden’s caller colleges and began calling in the Columbus, Ohio area.
I became club caller/teacher for several clubs in the central Ohio area including Orbiting Squares, Westerville Promenaders, Grove City Western Squares, Bucks and Does, West Jefferson Whirlers, and Frontier Squares (Milford, Ohio)
I am a member of CALLERLAB and the Central Ohio Caller’s Association.
I have released several square dance records and have recorded on G & W (Golden and Williamson), Red Boot, and the Red Boot Star labels.
I’ve been involved in several weekends including Honeymoon Weekend, Rainbow Jamboree Weekend, and English Mountain in Tennessee. With Eldon Lovingshimer I co-founded H.O.O.T.S. (Heart of Ohio Traveling Squares) a member club of The National Square Dance Campers Association.
I have traveled extensively in a 12-state area as well as calling in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
I am a “Life Member” of the Orbiting Squares and received the “Quarter Century” award from CALLERLAB for 25 years in calling in 2002.
