Hello My Name Is...

I was born and raised in Colorado and I have been teaching in the Douglas County Schools for the last 16 years, 11 of which have been at Mesa Middle School.  Before I began my career in DCSD, I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where I received my degree in Music Education. 
 I then began my career in Douglas County in an instrumental music itinerate teacher capacity, traveling between 3 different elementary schools teaching beginning band. When the opportunity arose to come on board to help start Mesa Middle School 12 years ago, I jumped at that opportunity and have loved every minute of it. I currently live in Castle Rock, CO with my wife, four kids, and dog Bernie.
