I'm currently the Director of Bands at Moore Square Magnet Middle School in Raleigh North Carolina. I have been teaching for over 26, worked in the Wake County Public School System since 2010, and have been at Moore Square Since 2015.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Western Carolina University in 1986 transferred to Elon College in 1987, and graduated in 1992. I pursued my Masters Studies in Band Conducting at Appalachian State University in 1993.

My middle and high school programs have performed across North Carolina, South Carolina, Virgina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, and Toronto, Canada earning numerous Superior and Gold performance ratings. I started Moore Square Middle School with 54 students in the band, orchestra, guitar, piano, and percussion and grew the program to 200 in the band today.
