I am excited to be at Woodland this year teaching band! Prior to joining the Coeur d'Alene School District, I taught music in the Lakeland School District for eight years.
I grew up in Spokane, studied music education at Washington State University, and completed my Ph.D. in music at Stony Brook University in New York. My main instrument is trumpet, but I enjoy learning new instruments and am trying to improve my guitar skills.
My wife (Miss) Lauren works at the Hayden Library as a children's librarian, we have two boys who are a lot of fun, and we enjoy all the great activities around the Coeur d'Alene area.
Please contact me if you have any questions about music. I'm looking forward to a great year.
