Hi all! You could say I’m in the family business because both my dad and mom were music teachers (band directors) in the public school system in the Richmond area. I started off banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons as soon as I was able to sit up and wave my arms. No wonder why Animal is my favorite Muppet!

I graduated with honors from college with a business degree but kept playing in high caliber bands and ensembles before, during, and after. I’ve been fortunate to check off a lot of boxes in my life so far. Some of those include playing drum set for many Broadway shows, timpani for a church service, xylophone for a concert band, tambourine for an orchestra, or playing a multi-percussion setup for a Top 12 drum and bugle corps during DCI Championships and being the head coach for the UVA Drumline. I’m here to get you started and/or to help you reach your next goal!


I recently accepted the Music Director/Conductor position for the Concert Bands in residence at The Center in Charlottesville, Virginia.
