I enjoy a wide variety of music genres, was a classroom teacher in the Des Moines Public Schools for several years, received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Dubuque, and Master of Music from Western Michigan University.

Usually, I can be found at a keyboard at AMC enjoying the opportunity of making music with others (although I’ve been known to sing and dabble with other musical instruments, as well).  My favorite scripture is Proverbs 3: 4 – 7, applied; the power of the Holy Spirit never fails to amaze. I consider music a great way to pray.

If I could live anywhere, it’d be right here in Des Moines, Iowa:  incredible scenery, Iowa “nice”, and great food.  Two favorites about my career are music and helping bring people forward to share their artistic talents with others. If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it’d probably be vegetables and fish. If money were no object I’d be having fun distributing it where I thought it would do the most good.
