About the Teacher

I was born in Darien, IL and lived there until I was five years old.  At that time my family moved to Central Illinois where I grew up in Tremont, just a few minutes away from Morton.  After high school I attended Bradley University where I graduated with a degree in Vocal Music Education in 2009.  I also graduated with my Master’s Degree in Music Education from Illinois State University in 2015.  When I am not at school, I am either with my wonderful wife Melissa or with my barbershop quartet, After Hours.  Melissa and I were married in 2009, and we are current Tremont residents.  We have two children, Lincoln and Gwendolyn, and they keep us busy!  Melissa and I also enjoy serving with our musical abilities at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Groveland, IL.  My quartet, After Hours, is the 2010 Illinois State Champion quartet, as well as an International Top 10 Medalist, currently ranked 3rd in the world.  We do quite a bit of touring on the weekends, throughout the country, and we have 3 studio albums.  We even have a website you can visit,  I absolutely love coming to work every day, working with the students at the Junior High.  I love watching them grow as musicians and singers, as well as young adults.
