I was raised Sheridan Wyoming and enjoy music, reading, and hiking and climbing mountain peaks. I play in several bands in the area and work as a freelance musician for hire.


Philosophy of Education

Education should serve the broad goal of giving students enough awareness in each discipline to allow them to develop their own individual interests and strengths and also to heighten their experience as a human, allowing them to lead a more fulfilling life. With instruction, one size never fits all. Teachers need to use their own personalities, methods, and expertise to convey the nuances of their subject area clearly. Each academic discipline has intrinsic aesthetic value and should never be used as the means to another curricular end.
