Why I do what I do...
My job is to open up the world of possibilities for students. My medium for this is music and band, but I am not bound to using just these tools.

I was a member of the McDonald's All-American Band and I do not really appreciate raw honey.
I am married to Holly Barnes, an extraordinary piano teacher at the Converse College Lawson Academy.
I have two cats named Gretal and Mr. Chuck Norris.
