I’m very happy to be in my 12th season conducting the Symphony of the Sierra for Columbia College. I've been conducting community ensembles for over twenty years and have twenty-five years experience teaching music in my own studio, for public and private schools, including a previous tenure with Columbia College as instructor for College Band. 


Since1999, I’ve conducted the Calaveras Community Band and for several years conducted both The Great Mother Brass & Reed Band and The Columbia Cornet Band. I was a trombonist with the Symphony of the Sierra beginning in 1992, and have performed with the Bear Valley Music Festival Symphony.  I was previously a member of the Stockton Youth Symphony, the Chico Symphony, the Olympia Symphony, the Townsend Opera Players,and have performed in pit ensembles for various musicals over the years.
