About The Teacher

I would like to take this opportunity to say "hello" to all the students and 
parents I will see this year.  I really enjoy teaching at St. Matthew 
School and I will use this space to tell you a little about myself.  I am now in my 
ninth year here at St. Matthew.

I am a Central Ohio native, having grown up in Whitehall.  I received my 
Bachelor's in Music Education at The Ohio State University, where I studied 
instrumental and vocal music.  At Ohio State I was a member of the Chorale, 
Symphonic Choir, Symphonic Band, and The Ohio State University Marching 
Band.  As a member of the band I was fortunate enough to travel to the 
Citrus Bowl in Orlando, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and twice to the Sugar Bowl in 
New Orleans.

In December 2008, I received my Master's Degree in Music Education with Kodaly emphasis from 
Capital University

I taught three years in the Granville School system, teaching band, middle 
school choir, and elementary music.  I then taught two years in Columbus 
Public Schools, first with elementary, then with middle school choir.
I have been a member of the Columbus Cecilian Singers, and you may have seen 
me at Easton Town Center during the holidays singing as a Victorian Caroler 
in a quartet known as VoiceQuad.

I live in Gahanna with my wife, Sandra, and my sons Nicolas, Micah, and Noah.  Sandra, my beautiful 
wife, who grew up in Bogota, Colombia, is a Spanish teacher at Canal Winchester High School.  Nico is now 
thirteen years old and attending 8th Grade at St. Matthew, while Micah and 
Noah are 10 and are in 5th Grade.

I can't wait to meet all of you.  Feel free to stop in anytime and say hello!
