Welcome to my web page!

I have taught school for 38 years, and am currently in my 26th year as director of the Oneonta band program. 

I am a past chairman of District II of the Alabama Bandmaster's Association, and served on the board of directors of the ABA.  In January 2015,  I was recognized by the Alabama Music Educator's Association at the state Inservice Conference in Montgomery with the Leadership Service Award.

I am married and have two sons and a daughter.  In my spare time, I enjoy performing magic, and am a member of the Fellowship of Christian Magicians.
