After a spotty avocational career in choir, theater, and (even) operettas (including a small solo part in Amahl and the Night Visitors) – along with a lot of driving-while-singing (never got ticketed for that!) – I finally came to my senses and auditioned for a serious rock and roll chorus, Alive & Kickin. And I’m loving it! Previously, I had a 47-year career in environmental engineering and science, working on river, groundwater, and lake water quality as a consultant and in government service. I earned a PhD (University of Minnesota) while working, and before that a bachelor’s degree from Harvard.
