I am in my eighth year as the Director of Bands here at Hodges Bend Middle School and I am also the Fine Arts/ Elective Department Chair. I graduated from Texas Christian University (TCU) with a Bachelors of Music Education. I started my teaching career in Santa Fe ISD (TX) for two years before heading to Pasadena ISD (TX) for nine years. I come from a musical family in which all four children were in Band or Choir. I have played a musical instrument for over 30 years which includes my primary instrument, trumpet. I am a member of Kappa Kappa Psi (Honorary Band Fraternity), TMEA and TBA. I am married and have two children. I am an avid baseball fan, especially the Chicago Cubs.
