I am in my first year as the Band Director at Dulles Middle School where I enjoy directing the Honor Band, teaching the beginning brass and percussion classes, and assisting with the Symphonic Band and Concert band. I have taught in Fort Bend since 2008, and spent my first 10 years at Sartartia Middle School as the assitant band director. I received my bachelor's degree in music education from Baylor University in 2008 where I studied trumpet under Professor Wiff Rudd and jazz under Professor Alex Parker. At Baylor, I was a also member of the symphonic band, wind ensemble, symphony orchestra, jazz ensemble and marching band. I received my master's degree in educational administration from the University of Houston-Victoria in 2015.
