Craig has been writing music since he bought an upright piano for himself 20 years ago! "What I've learned," Craig says, "Is that pianos should not be wheeled through the grass and stored in the basement!" which describes EXACTLY the scenario of how Craig self-taught himself to play the piano.
Craig previously spent many years travelling around the Unites States with a musical group called Youth Encounter based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Craig wrote songs for the group as well as serving as the band's drummer.
Craig's musical influences are varied. From Barry Manilow to the Pet Shop Boys, Craig listens for the instant hook of a song.
Craig has been a 4th grade teacher at New Albany Elementary School in Columbus, OH for the past 8 years. Craig is now licensed to be a school principal. "Just what every kid wants . . . a piano-playing principal!"
