I’m a native of Kansas City, Missouri where I live with my wife, Maura Cluthe, and our dog Rosie. Growing up, I was literally surrounded by music – my father owned a music store, where he sold every musical instrument you can think of. I played many of them, but finally settled on the tuba in high school and college. An avid reader, I earned my Bachelor’s in Philosophy. 

I’m a self-taught Mac geek, beginning with a Mac Plus to edit my college newspaper and yearbook. I first discovered the internet in the form of a BBS at my first job as a technology assistant for the special education department of a local school district. I am now the Director of Campus Technology at the Kansas City Art Institute.

I am a collector of things: art, toy VW Beetles, urban vinyl, records, rubber balls, books, etc. The rule in our house is if you own three or more of a thing, it’s a collection. I am also a practicing pogonotrophist.
