I developed my passion for piano technology initially working on my own instruments.  After acquiring a vintage concert grand Kawai piano that needed frequent tuning and repairs I learned how to tune and maintain pianos. My piano students noticed dramatic changes in my piano tone and performance and I started receiving requests and referrals for piano work. As  i continued getting referrals, I decided to join the Piano Technicians Guild to further improve my skills, when I had the opportunity to participate in many great training programs. Especially important were factory seminars with Steinway, Yamaha, Boesendorfer, Kawai and others as well as presentations by well known concert technicians and rebuilders.  I currently operate a rebuilding atelier in Hagerstown, MD and travel to tune in the tristate area and the DMV.
