My life path is one that is chock full of twists and turns. Fresh out of high school I began a career in the printing industry, and 15 years after that I found myself giving up that career to be a full-time dad.
And now, almost a couple more decades down the road, I find myself trying to settle into another career path realizing that music has always had a strange way of weaving itself into almost every facet of my journey.
So, when I decided to enroll in the Photography program at College of DuPage and pursue my dream of becoming a working photographer, it was no surprise to find that my instructor was also an excellent local musician.
Christopher Schneberger is not only a brilliant instructor that has just earned COD’s Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Award, but he is also the drummer for a three-piece indie band known as Moon.
Moon has been together for about 10 years and the group has a number of album releases, but the band is extremely excited about their latest album, Extinction. As the band continues to grow, so does the fan base and the overall availability of their music.
This is the first time a Moon release is to be offered on vinyl, which means we get to see Chris’s photography work in a larger format. His skill as both a photographer and a drummer is on full display with Extinction, making it a must-have for all of the people walking with me along the path that balances music and life with such delicate brilliance.
