I have been a musician since the age of four. I play piano, organ, guitar, and I’ll quietly admit that I even know some accordion. I attended Our Lady of the Presentation for grade school. I graduated from Chaminade College Prep in 1990, and I am a graduate of Lindenwood University.
Music ministry first became a part of my life in 6th grade, playing for my school masses at Presentation. My first ‘real’ professional experience was at St. Kevin at age 15. A couple of years later, I was offered a position at St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, where I directed music for the next 6 years. A full time position became available at Assumption Church in South County with a variety of choirs and musical activities. I began my career in education at Chaminade College Prep where I taught but also continued music ministry.
I am so blessed to be in Catholic education at Queen of All Saints. The students are amazing and I get to share in their development as we grow closer to Christ. I am proud to have my son, Brayden and my daughter, Charlotte, both attend Queen of All Saints.
Some of my other interests besides music and family is computer programming. I am a professional level woodworker and love to build furniture. Other hats I wear are leather worker and light metal worker. When I need a break from all of that, you might find me on the road riding my motorcycle.
