I have been fortunate to spend the last 20 years traveling across the United States as a performer, arranger, engraver, clinician and educator. This has provided me with many opportunities to work with many people from all over the world on various projects. My day-to-day schedule is never the same and includes work as a music educator (I currently teach middle school and community college), performer, composer, arranger, orchestrator, editor, and engraver. I have taught band at every grade level (from 5th grade beginning band through college) and have written music for the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, The New York Philharmonic, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as for members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Vienna Philharmonic.
Currently, I am the Band Director at St. Helens Middle School in St. Helens, OR, and am on the faculty at Portland Community College-Rock Creek, where I conduct the Symphonic Band and teach Composition.
