I'm a graduate of Colorado Christian University with a BA in Music with Voice as my primary instrument. I have been teaching beginner level guitar and electric bass guitar for over 10 years. I'm a guru when it comes to chords and strumming patterns. I utilize my vocal background in my teaching style as I can pinpoint problem notes to help students find the correct ones by utilizing my ear for music. I am a well rounded musician who played Tuba professionally in the Marine Corps, took music theory and ear training in college, and have a vast amount of performance experience be it as a worship leader in a church setting, playing trombone and tuba in college or entertaining audiences through vocal performance for over 20 years. Whether you want to learn guitar, electric bass, voice, Tuba or Trombone lessons, ear training, or Basic Music Theory, I am qualified and ready to assist. I teach in a style that is helpful and non threatening. I'm here to help you grow in understanding. I'll teach you practice skills that will lead you to success in your musical pursuits by helping you both set and achieve your musical goals.

I am an avid sports fan. College football is my favorite to watch and follow each fall. I love to get outdoors and hike in the mountains with my wife and our dog. I love to write songs and first learned guitar as an outlet for song writing. My favorite thing to do on a nice day is Disc Golf. I enjoy cooking, watching movies, and spending quality time with my family.
