Preston is known throughout the country and parts of Europe as a passionate visual designer, instructor and clinician. A Key ingredient that Preston possesses is his personality. He can get along with anyone and his sense of humor as well as his professionalism has worked in harmony over many years. This combination is the kind of glue that an organization needs when getting many passionate and creative people together.

"One of Preston's best attributes is his vision of the totality of a program. He sees music, drill, dance, theatre and guard equipment work as components of the greater whole. Couple his musicianship with his extensive background as a visual designer and extended training in dance, theatre and color guard, and you have a person that can drive a program from all sides. Each member of the design team can be assured that their voice will be heard through knowledgeable ears. Preston has taken on many musical ensembles and incorporated high levels of body movement to enhance the entire audio-visual experience in an intelligent and artistic way."
