Born in 1944, Ron is married to a wonderful educator/schoolteacher
and is a graduate of George Washington University where he earned his BA
degree in Journalism. For two decades he opted for a career in executive
search, recruiting for both Fortune 500 corporations and small hi-tech
companies. Collecting Christmas music was a hobby.
When Ron heard heavenly Christmas carols sung by a choir of nuns at
his first Midnight Mass at a Catholic orphanage in Philadelphia, he was
hooked. He eventually sang in the orphanage boys’ choir. In later years
he collected Christmas music of all genres and by 1982 he had assembled
a sizable library.
In 1989 his continued interest in Christmas music led him on his
journey to compile the landmark
THE MILLENNIA COLLECTION. His
objective was to create one of the finest Christmas music products
Curious by nature, Ron wanted an innovative format to share his
discovery about how Christmas music developed over two thousand years.
With the future release of
Sacred Christmas Music (Vol. #4) and
subsequent volumes, along with the first three titles, Ron believes
readers are in for an exciting adventure.
