“I have been making artisan cheese for 21 years. My wife and I live in Charlotte, Michigan. I have taught in Michigan, North Carolina, Alabama, Iowa, and Minnesota.

I have had training from Glengarry Cheese Company in Canada, and have been guided by Ricki Carol of New England Cheese Making Company for the last fifteen years.

I took a short cheese course from Michigan State University. The last training I had was from Peter Dixon in Pennsylvania on Farmstead Cheese Making.

I am always reading more on cheese making. My library has 50 books on cheese.

I enjoy meeting and teaching people cheese making, and find I usually learn something new in each class I teach.”
