About Me.

To make a long story short, I was born and raised in Nashville. I still live within the surrounding Nashville area, so I have seen Nashville go from simple to silly to crazy!

I currently judge Fall marching band percussion within TN, and indoor percussion for ETPAA, SCGC, ADLA, AIA and CWEA. I have also taught middle school band for at least 9 years.

Beyond judging and teaching, I play with my band called Nightingale and work on strengthening my Star Wars knowledge.
