I graduated from Wartburg College in 2002 with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education. I started teaching in the Pella Community School district in 2002. I enjoy the challenge of bringing students together to create inspirational music. I am the director of choral activities in 6th -8th grade that encompasses close to 250 students. I am also the Head Girls Golf Coach at the High School.
My wife Bethany teaches 6th Grade Science at Jefferson Intermediate. I have three children Thomas, Tabetha, and Theodore. I enjoy golfing, running, traveling, and spending time with family in my spare time.
