Hello, they call me Bruce.

I am an instructional developer, professional musician and a co-founder of this web site. I developed this site and work on keeping things running smoothly.

For a period of about 20 years, pursuits in music performance took me around the world. I am now settled in Phoenix, Arizona and by day I work at the district office for a community college system of 10 campuses.

By night and on weekends I play 3rd and acting principal horn in the Arizona Opera Orchestra. I have enjoyed being being in the opera and freelancing in Phoenix since 1995.
