Teaching at SU has been a wonderful experience. I love the campus setting, and enjoy getting to know my students and helping to coach them as they learn to play America’s true musical art form, Jazz.
I am blessed with my wife of nearly 20 years, Anomi, and our four children. I enjoy practicing mixed martial arts, serving/teaching at my church, Delray Baptist Church in Alexandria, and performing with great musicians.
