New!!!    MRHS Orchestra Website


I have been teaching orchestra at Mesa Ridge and Widefield Elementary School since 2013.  My main instrument is the bass, though I also enjoy playing violin, viola and cello.   I play bass with the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs and with a local bluegrass band.   I am an All-State Orchestra board member and actively involved in the Colorado chapter of the American String Teachers Association.  I enjoy playing music, running, and spending time with my daughter, Juniper, and our new dog, Smokey Bear. 


Educational Background

I teach at Widefield Elementary in the afternoon so I am often not in my office.
