He has worked part-time as a professional voice instructor for over thirty years as a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). While new to the realm of political commentary and satire, he feels fortunate to begin with this particularly anomalous presidential election supplying fertile ground for commentary. An advocate of the “Vacuous” school of thought, he relies on his personally time-tested method of staring vacantly into space for protracted periods of time for his material.
