I am originally from Benton, Illinois.  I graduated from there in 2010 and then attended Murray State to study in Music Education.  Music has had a great influence in my life.  I was blessed enough to have had excellent music teachers that guided me through school.  Teaching music is something I have always wanted to do and now I am very glad to be doing just that!  In my time at Murray State I was fortunate enough to perform in many different musical ensembles. Some of those include, the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, NTC (a trumpet ensemble group), Jazz Band, Racer Band, and many other small chamber groups.  In college I had also joined the men's music fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.  During my time with the fraternity I had served two terms as Music Director.  Such good memories and friendships that continue to this day.  In 2011 at Murray I had met the most beautiful woman ever, little did I know she would eventually be my wife. Thankfully she was from the same area as me, so summer and holiday visits were actually possible!  We have been married a little over two wonderful years and they have been the best years of my life so far.  Once I graduated college in December of 2015, I was just looking online for job postings. While on my search, I came across one for an Assistant Band Director position for Meade County in Brandenburg, KY.  Next thing I knew, I was hired and we were moving to Meade County.  We have enjoyed our time here so much and look forward to meeting new people!
