I enjoy teaching private horn lessons and performing with groups such as the Fort Collins Wind Symphony, Friends of Loveland Chamber Music and the Colorado Brass Quintet.
I also enjoy spending time in the mountains hiking, fishing, camping, etc. I like to read, cook, garden, travel and spend time with friends and family too!
