Teaching Philosophy

Positive reinforcement is key! I will find the gem of individuality in each student and nurture exactly that. I am not here to simply tell you what i know, I am here as a catalyst, helping you blaze your own trail.


A self taught musician with eighteen years of experience. The first nine years as a drummer and the next nine, up until now, as a guitar player. I’ve traveled all over the country playing original music. As far as the likes of Austin, Texas and northern Florida. I released my first album in early 2019 and am currently working on the next. Side note: I was a competitive level gymnast for eight years, coached for two and am well versed in working with children.

Fun Fact

If you add up all the time i’ve spent on the road and traveling (not vacationing), it would equal thirteen months. Five of which i spent vagabonding though South America.
