About Me:

I grew up in Spokane, Washington where I attended Mead High School and Whitworth University. During college, I was able to travel all over the world performing in my university music ensembles as well as touring the U.S. for three summers with the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps. After graduating, I lived and taught high school, middle school, and elementary band/music in Fresno, California for three years. I moved to Boise in 2013 and love teaching band at LCMS. My wife and I had our first daughter in 2018 and we are loving our new life as parents.
