A native of Maryland, Ted grew up in a musical family. In 4th grade, Ted began his trombone playing career and quickly challenged himself to become involved with county and state honor bands. In high school, he was a fixture in the band program as part of the Marching, Concert, Orchestra, and Stage Band groups. Ted especially enjoyed playing in the Stage Band which performed Big Band and Jazz music with a full compliment of musicians.
After college in Philadelphia, Ted moved to the Atlanta area to begin his career in IT. Over the past 20+ years, he has participated in several local groups and, in addition to CCX, currently plays in the Broad St. Concert Band of Sugar Hill and in his church. Ted has 3 school-aged children who have a talent for music and ER visits.
While he still piddles on piano and guitar, he says he loves playing Big Band bone again with the great folks in CCX.
