    Welcome back to school!

    I grew up in Oregon and went to the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!) where I earned a degree in Music Education.  I began my teaching career in Albany, Oregon and completed my Master's Degree in Music Education and Conducting.  I moved to Idaho to teach in Idaho Falls, Idaho and during that time I founded the Idaho Falls Youth Symphony and co-founded the Idaho Falls Youth Youth Arts Centre. I entered the PhD. program at the University of Oregon in Music History and Conducting and achieved ABD status.  I have been active as a conductor, performing musician and arranger for the past 30 years and have been very fortunate to have been able to work with some amazing talent over the years.  As an arranger I have had my works performed by major symphonies across the world, including the National Memorial Day Concert broadcast on PBS.  My father grew up in Helena, and in a way this feels like coming back home.
