My Hobbies

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.

Photo of Crosses in Israel

The trip to the Holy Land was the trip of a lifetime. My wife and I were just amazed at what we saw and experienced. I compare it to going to the east coast and seeing things hundreds of years old, but in Israel things are thousands of years old.
