Degrees and Certifications:
I am incredibly excited to begin my 4th year as a Timberwolf Pack member. I am a native Floridian who moved to Virginia in 2013. I received a Bachelors in Guitar Performance from Florida Southern College and a Masters in Education from George Mason University. I spent a decade teaching and performing on the guitar throughout the Tampa Bay area before working in public schools. I taught elementary music for Hillsborough County Schools in Florida and Manassas City Schools in Virginia. I also have experience teaching beginning band and orchestra at the middle school level. This will be my 11th year as a public educator. I maintain a small studio of guitar students and I am working on developing curriculum for students to learn guitar in blended and online environments.
In my spare time I like going on outdoor adventures such as camping, mountain biking, and hiking. I currently live in Haymarket with my wife, 6 and 2 year old daughters, and dog Brutus.
