Music...Drumline....Teaching...Arranging....Reading.... I teach and
arrange percussion at several schools in southern Indiana. I
recieved an Associate's Degree in Music from Vincennes University,
and after a semseter of guitar performance at Berklee College of
music, my days of guitar gunslinging were over(can you say
burnout?). When I came back from Boston, I guess you could say I
was lost(both personally and musically). I had marched snare in
high school and taught a few drumlines after high school, but had
thoughts of guitar stardom running through my head. Once the guitar
hero syndrome(NO, not the video game!!)had run its course, I
started teaching percussion again, and over the next few years I
found my true calling as both a musician and teacher. When not
teaching and/or arranging I like to read(anything, but mostly
Stephen King), listen to music(I have a thing for 80's metal),
watch baseball(GO RED SOX!!), play video games, go to Drum Corp
rehearsals and shows, and watch movies. Growing up I always had
dogs, but now I have two cats...go figure! I thnk that mushrooms
are disgusting, and Diet Coke is MUCH better than Diet Pepsi. Oh
yeah.... I think midgets are cool, but they kinda freak me out.
Anything else...just ask!
I am kind, honest, trustworthy, SARCASTIC, politically incorrect,
and a blast to hang out with! I would like a relationship, but I
don't want to rush into anything.
