I began instructing as a child giving music lessons to my neighbors on flute and clarinet. I have since instructed music and music history in public schools, private schools, community bands and in individual lessons. I am active duty in the Army and a section leader in the Army National Guard Band. I attended the University of Missouri St. Louis where I studied flute performance prior to joining the Army National Guard. I deployed to Afghanistan in 2009-10 and upon return enrolled in the American Military University where I graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Military History. I am currently enrolled in the MA of Political Science program at the American Military University where I intend to graduate in 2014. I have extensive experience in research, data compilation, writing and policy analysis. I look forward to helping students understand their subjects and employ new strategies for study and education.
