I've been a teacher for over 25 years. During that time I've taught a wide variety of subjects including Business, Computer Explorations, Study Skills, Choral Music, Theater, Guitar, Bowling, and English. I am a product of Mesa Public Schools, and although I'm proud to be a Mountain Lion, part of me will always be a Mustang. I hold a Master's degree in Musical Theater Performance, and a Bachelor's degree in Education both from Arizona State University.
In addition to teaching a lot of different subjects, I've also lived a lot of different places. I started teaching at Kingman High School in Kingman, AZ. After that I moved to Tennessee where I spent a short while working as a professional entertainer. I returned to teaching in Safford, AZ before moving to Las Vegas, NV and finally landed back home in Mesa.
I met my wife while working at my first job in Kingman. Our daughter is currently living in Tennessee, pursuing a career in the music industry as a singer/songwriter.
I've enjoyed great success as a teacher and have been honored with many awards. My favorite occurred in 2011 when I received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities that allowed me to travel to Vienna, Austria for a month and study Mozart. You can find out a lot more about me, and that trip, at my travel-blog, Mozart & Me. Just click on the picture of Mozart's grave.
