Bio: I graduated from Hurricane High School in 2007 and graduated from WVU with a Bachelors in Music Education with an emphasis on trumpet in 2011. After college, I was the band director in Wyoming County, where I taught at Westside High School and the local feeder schools for three years. This was the moment I realized middle school was my calling.  I moved back to the Charleston area and am about to begin my 7th year at HMMS!


Enjoy any type of music, but my favorite musicians are Elton John, The Who, Billy Joel, Maynard Ferguson, and anything from the 60’s-70’s. I also enjoy movie soundtracks! My hobbies include cooking, watching movies, video games and board games. I’m also beginning to dive into the world of woodworking. I currently live in Cross Lanes with my wonderful wife Lindsey and my loud cat, Thor.
