As of September 1, 2005, I retired from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. I became a member of the Milwaukee Symphony in 1973 and have also performed with the Connecticut Brass Quintet, the Hartford Symphony, the Connecticut Opera Company, the Cream City Brass, the New Hampshire Brass Quintet, the Vermont Symphony, and the New Britain Symphony. I was born and grew up in Vermont , studied music at the Hartt School of Music and the Yale School of Music. My primary trumpet teachers were Ronald Kutik (principal of the Hartford Symphony) and Robert Nagel (New York Brass Quintet). I am now playing on a part time basis, volunteering, and coaching my son's Lego Robotics team, The Guys Inside.
I met my wife, Anne, onstage at Uihlein Hall; she was a longtime member of the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus until our second child was born. She was a Public Administrator for Milwaukee County for 25 years, retired in 2004 and is now a member of the Greendale School District Board of Education. We have two children- Angela, 15 and Mark, 11 and reside in Greendale. I have served on several committees of the orchestra including as chair of the Artistic Liaison committee, the Education Committee and the Player's Council and I am active with the MSO's ACE (Arts in Community Education) program, performing for fifth graders with the Composer's Quartet. Over my career I participated in six contract negotiations as chair or union representative. Currently I am serving as webmaster for www.msomusicians.org.
An avid sailor, I am a member of South Shore Yacht Club-the club bugler, of course-and I sail my 1964 sailboat "CALLISTO" all over Lake Michigan, including several solo trips across to Michigan and cruising to Door County and the North Channel of Lake Huron. I have also been on several "bareboat" cruises to the Bahamas and Belize, home to some of the world's most beautiful sailing grounds and hope someday to cross the pond-sail across the Atlantic Ocean.
As webmaster for PearsonVanguard.org, a website about the Philip Rhodes designed Pearson Vanguard sailboat, I have established myself as the foremost source of information about these classic boats built in the 1960's. I currently am the webmaster for www.bachbabes.org, a chamber music organization, www.friendsofgreendaleschools.org, a school support group, and www.stevedeclark.com, a website for a friend who is an awesome comedian.
I am a survivor of colorectal cancer and am active as a Cancer Alliance "cancer buddy" helping others afflicted with this disease, and in efforts to promote awareness of and screening for this and other cancers, and funding for research to help find a cure.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Q: Why do trumpet players make good
A: Because they can handle high seas! (high C's)

"There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality; there is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is a trumpeter's fury; then there's the dark side...."
