Hello, and welcome to my site. This is the home of my e-portfolio, some of my thoughts on music and education, and some of my music and guitar-playing. I have been teaching music at Umatilla Elementary School in Florida to K-5th graders for the past 14 years, and I play jazz guitar wherever I am to support my teaching habits. I have been fortunate to play music professionally all over the world in many venues and with many great musicians and performers. After a year in England, we have returned to my childhood home of Northwest Arkansas. I am teaching and playing music once again where it all began. It is my wish to continue this and to enjoy music every day. I hope you enjoy the site.
