I have a lovely wife, Amy and two cool daughters. Anna is a Registered Nurse and Katie just graduated from the University of North Texas in Denton.
I'm beginning my 39th year as an Educator. I was a Band Director for 25 years and also have been a Video Technology Instructor. I hold teaching certifications in Music and Technology Applications. I also have certifications in computer applications and CompTIA - A+ certification.
I enjoy computer programming, riding my bicycle and hanging out with my friends and family. I am a Published Music Composer and Arranger. I also spend time playing electric guitar and studying both Blues and Rock Music. For many years I have performed in the Paris Municipal Band as a musician. For the past 8 years I have been conductor of the band. I am an avid photographer, drone enthusiast and videographer.
I believe magic can happen in the classroom, everyday!
