I was born and raised in Fargo, ND, and have been a lifelong learner.  My piano training began at age 5, and maintaining a piano studio has been a priority in my life since age 15.  The love of music has manifested itself for me in some of the typical ways like accompanying soloists and ensembles, guest pianist for social events, private and group lesson teaching, choral conducting, and church worship coordination.  One area that has been particularly successful is development and delivery of a curriculum for instrumentalists (especially effective with guitarists and non-music reading keyboardists) that significantly expands their understanding of chord structures and music theory elements they see or hear.  I balance my music interests with my business career as Chief Financial Officer at Perficut Companies, Inc. in Des Moines. We play an integral role in the beautification and snow/ice management of thousands of properties in central Iowa.  The merging of music and math and the discipline found in continuous improvement, long-term planning, critical thinking, and documentation are a natural combination for me.  It is a pleasure to be part of the Simpson community.
