My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The students.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Read.

In my classes, students can expect: Hard work while having fun.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Reach out to your faculty members because we are committed to your success.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Strong and happy while always pursuing excellence.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: It requires a lot of hard work to make music look easy.

A quote that influences how I live is: Happiness is a choice.
