I am thrilled to be in my sixth year of teaching in Loudoun County and fifth year full-time as an Arcola Dragon. I am originally from Richmond, VA where I started my musical career as an actor and singer. As I grew, I gained a love for drums and percussion and earned a Percussion Performance degree and Master of Music Pedagogy degree from Shenandoah University (Go Hornets! Buzzzzz). I now play percussion for the Virginia National Guard 29th Infantry Division Band and love to play music and sing with my wife (who is also an LCPS music specialist);our two cats, Hazel and Poe; and our two dogs, Kubo and Knox. After a year of teaching through a computer, I am excited to see my Dragons face-to-face once more.
