About me

I am a retired Captain of the Illinois State Police and member of the ISP Pipes and Drums, the oldest state law enforcement pipe band in America. My experience piping ceremonies and funerals is extensive. I have performed solo before three Illinois Governors (Thompson, Quinn, Rauner), twice on the floor of the Illinois House of Representatives, and at the Illinois Supreme Court. My greatest honor, however, was to play for my comrades at cadet graduations, promotions, and funerals for fallen State Troopers and local police officers.

I play an 1890 David Glen reproduction bagpipe (pictured below), custom Chris Armstrong bagpipes, and Gibson smallpipes.   My attire ranges from casual to formal and includes American, Irish, and Scottish tartans.


Pictured below is my set of Gibson smallpipes in African Blackwood.  They were a gift from my wife on our 20th anniversary.   The sweet sound and lower volume make them ideal for indoor events such as dinner parties and inside funeral homes.
