Do you play in a band or currently perform?
I am the Director of Bands at Snider High School in Fort Wayne. I direct the concert bands, jazz bands,
and marching band.
I was born and raised in Orange County, California. I started my musical journey by playing the piano at age 4 and my primary instrument is now the trombone. I attended the Jacob’s School of Music at Indiana University and earned a bachelor’s degree in music education. My primary occupation is the Director of Bands at Snider High School. I love being a band director and teaching music because my job is to awaken possibility in other people. I am happily married and enjoy golfing in my spare time.
