He had several full-time church jobs before meeting Jane Muller at the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra where they both played double bass. She and John invited him to start working at Muller in 1988 on a part-time basis while he was still holding down a church job.
Later he left church work to be full-time at Muller. His main duties include electrical work (he also has a BS in Computer Science) and console assembly, but he also does leather work and tuning.
His favorite thing about working at Muller is building new instruments: the process of starting from raw materials and ending with a new musical instrument.
Stan likes to cook and, if the weather is nice, he will go for long bicycle rides on the weekend.
