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 
twelve years old and attending 7th Grade at St. Matthew, while Micah and 
Noah are 9 and are in 4th Grade.

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