I teach music courses and chair the Performing Arts Department
I enjoy working with the students and helping them to enjoy music as much as I do.
I love to read and spend time with my family.
Probably the day I got hired as a full time faculty. That was and is my dream job.
I think my high school piano teacher helped me decide what path to take in college. He showed me there are a lot of ways to make a decent living in music and you don't have to be a starving artist!
You don't get any free ice cream if you don't ask.
Frederick Chopin (greatest piano composer ever), Bram Stoker (how much of Dracula was your own ideas vs. legend?), and my husband (he is always good for entertainment!).
I would have a really hard time living without my husband and two wonderful kids, and music.
I love to compose music. I truly wish I had more time to do this.
