Since 2012, I have been proud to serve as band director at Wausau East High School.  Prior to Wausau East, I was band director at Cuba City High School for nine years, and at Pepin Area Schools for three years prior to that.  At East High, I teach Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Marching Band, and the Tophatters Jazz Band.  I also teach a non-performance music course for our special educaiton students.  My undergraduate degree is from UW-Madison, where I was a member of the Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Trumpet Ensemble, and Marching Band.  I continue to be a huge fan of Badger athletics and am a proud member of the UW Band Alumni Association.  I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the National Band Association-Wisconsin Chapter and am also a member of the American School Band Director's Association.  I am also active as a Master Adjudicator for the Wisconsin School Music Association.

Outside of East, I also serve as an organist at First Methodist in Wausau, and I am active as a freelance trumpeter, being involved with Mosinee Community Band, Mosinee Community Theatre, and Wausau Community Theater.  

My wife, Wendy, is currently a Lecturer in the English Department at UW-Stout and works as a Games Master at Cracked Escape Room.  We have one daughter, Katie, who is currently in Band and Orchestra at Horace Mann Middle School, and also holds a First Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-do from the Likes Black Belt Federation.  I enjoy cooking, boating, and gaming, and I am also active in martial arts.
