color & winter guard director
I got my start in the marching arts with Danville High School (IL) where I marched trumpet, was a mellophone section leader in the marching band, winter guard captain, and a drum major.
I went to college at Eastern Illinois University where I studied music education and was a trumpet section leader for the marching band. I also marched the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 as a soprano/marching French horn, and 1997/1999 in the color guard.
I have been teaching color guard, movement, marching, and music for middle school, high school, and college programs for the last 23 years, starting with both my high school and college alma maters. I started the winter guard program for Eastern Illinois University.
Aside from EIU, I taught the guard for the University of Colorado at Boulder, Ball State University (IN), and have been on staff for the University of South Florida Winter Guard for the last 5 years.
I have taught high schools in 9 different states. My latest adventures in Florida were with Thomas Jefferson High School and Northside Christian Middle/High Schools. I have been in the Tampa Bay area for the last 12 years, and bought my home in St Petersburg where I decided to settle down many years ago.
I am excited to work with the St Petersburg High School music program to make even more amazing opportunities for the school's students to participate in!
