I was born in Sapulpa, Oklahoma in 1955 and lived there until I went to college in 1973. I attended the University of Arkansas (Whooo Pig Soooiiiieeee) and graduated in 1978 with a BS in Music Education.
I have one sister, Diane, who lives in Dallas, Texas. In 1978, I married my wife, Susan, and have been married for 36 years. We have three children, Aaron, 31, Sara, 29, and Will, 19. In 2009, Sara married Brady Ross, whom she met in college.
After 27 years of being employed as a band director, I decided to make a change. For the past 9 years I have taught computer classes at Clark High School in Plano ISD. Below are the courses that I have taught:
I also am responsible for the Clark eNews that is published each week and the Clark High School Website.
My hobbies all have something to do with music. I have loved
all kinds of music since I was very young. I took piano lessons as a child
and then in fifth grade, I started in band, playing percussion. I have played
percussion ever since. My senior year in high school I made the Oklahoma All-State
Band. In college I was a featured soloist with the University of Arkansas Symphonic
Band and The U of A Percussion Ensemble. I now play in the Allen Philharmonic
Orchestra and I also teach private percussion lessons in my home.
