Degrees and Certifications:
I am incredibly excited about beginning my 5th 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 12th year as a public educator. I maintain a small studio of guitar students and I am working on developing a 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, my two daughters who are 7 and 3 years old, and our dog named Mr. Sprinkles.
