Hello, and welcome to my biography page. My original hometown is New Castle Pennsylvania where I grew up as a Laurel High School Spartan (yes, the colors were and continue to be green and white, and of course the fight song is the same as ours, "Fight On") -- so, I felt at home upon my arrival to Hughesville in 1994. I have performed in bands since the third grade, starting with the Clarinet. My favorite band experiences include the Laurel High School (Spartan) Marching Band, The Clarion University Golden Eagle Marching Band, and The Clarion University Jazz Band. Through my years in band I have been able to perform at the former Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh PA, as well as a college band tour of Cancun Mexico. I currently teach and perform live music including vocals, alto saxophone, acoustic and electric guitar, and bass guitar. Music has opened many doors for me and has been a great influence in my life. I am fortunate to work with the great students of Hughesville. It is my hope that they will enjoy music as much as I have and will experience all music has to offer. Spartan Pride!
