About Me

This is my fourteenth year teaching music at Monte Vista and I have been teaching instrumental music in PVSD since 1999. I play more than a dozen instruments, but I have more performing experience on woodwind instruments (I have been playing the flute since I was 10 years old). I also enjoy gardening, hiking and reading. I am excited to work with the talented musicians at this school to build a high-quality music program. Go Toros!
