I was born in Sapulpa, Oklahoma in 1955 and lived there until I went to college in 1973. I attended the University of Arkansas (Whooo Pig Soooiiiieeee) and graduated in 1978 with a BS in Music Education.

My Profession

After 27 years of being employed as a band director, I decided to make a change. For the past 9 years I have taught computer classes at Clark High School in Plano ISD. Below are the courses that I have taught:

I also am responsible for the Clark eNews that is published each week and the Clark High School Website.

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.
