Hello! I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education with a concentration in Percussion from University of Delaware in 2009. While there I performed with various ensembles including, but not limited to: Percussion Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and University of Delaware Fighting Blue Hens Marching Band. In addition, I marched with the 2009 World Champion Drum and Bugle Corp the Reading Buccaneers.
I previously taught at Northern High School in Calvert County, Maryland where I served as the Department Chair, and director of the Marching Band, Percussion Ensemble, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Bands. My Ensembles regularly earned superior ratings at both the District and State level.
Outside of teaching, I am an experienced performer, clinician, and adjudicator in the state of Maryland.
