I graduated from Standley Lake High School in 1991 and moved to Fort Collins to attend Colorado State University. There I played in the Colorado State Wind Ensemble, Marimba Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble and the CSU Ram Marching Band! Then graduated in 1997 with a Bachelors degree in Music Education. I moved to little town, Sterling, Colorado where I taught K-12 music at the Fleming Schools in Fleming, Colorado from 1997-2001. That summer I moved to Greeley to work on a Masters degree in Music Education. I graduated from UNC that following spring and got married to the love of my life in June 2002. In the fall, I accepted the Music Director position at Northglenn Middle School. I spent my out of school time doing lots of things. Playing with my kids and all that they do. I play drum set in a local Denver rock/reggae band. In 2014 I began to play drum set for the Denver Bronco Band, The Stampede Brass. We play at all the home Bronco games.
