    Born in San Antonio, Texas, on September 14, 1961. Moises graduated from High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland, and attended the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland;

    He began his career at Lewis & Hitchcock in 1980 as an organ builder. In 1983, he moved to to his native state of Texas and worked for Schudi Organ Co. in Dallas, Texas. He worked in many capacities at Schudi from 1983 to 1986. While doing an installation for Schudi in Hamilton, Massachusetts, in 1986, he decided he wanted to stay in the area. He worked for various organ builders in the area, Noack Organ Co., George Bozeman and Andover Organ Co. until 1998. At the age of 40, he did a complete career change and went to work for Bell Atlantic Yellow Pages and worked in their IT department. Although he left organ building, music continued for him with his beloved tubas. He played with various orchestras in the area, Phillips Andover Academy Orchestras, Merrimack Valley Philharmonic and Reading Symphony, as well as various freelance projects when called upon.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
