After Rons short time working as an architect, he used his musical and design talents to set up his own workshop, in which he created replicas of 17th and 18th century harpsichords of the Baroque era. Every detail of the harpsichord was made by hand, from the stringing of the instrument to the artistic details of the exterior inlaid woodwork. Rons instruments were commissioned by musical ensembles and collectors throughout North America and Europe. Ron also served for many years on the board of the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival. After moving to Rancho Santa Fe in 1996, Ron supported the San Diego Mainly Mozart Festival and offered his home on many occasions for recitals and fund-raisers for the group.
