Listen to my music

Houston, Texas native - Graduated with an M.Ed. in Secondary Education: Instrumental Music in the Peabody College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University.

Currently Associate Director of Bands at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in the Houston Independent School District.

My career goals include advocating for and working with students to absolutely maximize their potential and help them reach for goals they didn't think possible, in groups and as individuals.

I enjoy good coffee, Texas Hill Country, South Padre Island, Nashville, New England (especially Maine), experiencing new cultures, dogs, performing, arranging and composing Jazz, Rock, Pop and Art Music, photography, trying new foods, marching band, University of Texas and Vanderbilt Football, and making music with kids!

In my spare time, I aspire to be some combination of Charles Ives, Henry Rollins, and Kurt Vonnegut.

Restorative Mindset - Collaboration and Input Seeker - Rigor and Realist - Empathy - Intellection - Ideation
