Southern California. Happy husband and father. Bachelor's in Music Education from Florida State University, currently finishing up my Master's degree in Educational Technology and Media Leadership at California State University Long Beach. I've been teaching middle school band and orchestra for over 10 years, and have taken on the reins of teaching multimedia as well. I actively seek out and find new ways to improve my pedagogy and professionalism using technology for both research and practice. I not only enjoy teaching my students every day, but also teaching my colleagues as well. I keep an open mind, loathe limitations, take one day at a time, and adhere to the advice I received when I was younger, "Make it work!"
