I grew up in Mechanicsburg, PA. I was an Indian, a football player, and owned a neighborhood bank. I was skilled in horse racing (well, on my bike), and culinary arts. My best dish was a type of beans you can make with crayons and gum, but my mother wasn't too happy about that so I will not share the recipe. She wasn't happy about the bank, either, but what else do you do with canceled checks?
I attended Bible Baptist School (West Shore Christian Academy) and Christian School of York. I spent Saturdays at Harrisburg Youth for Christ attending rallies or participating in music and drama. I studied Music Education and the horn at Messiah College. I love playing the horn!
After college I traveled with the Continental Orchestra, playing the horn to share Jesus with others.
I taught music at Lighthouse Christian Academy in NJ for six years before coming to DC in 1995. While here, I have earned an MAR from Westminster Theological Seminary. I play my horn with the Providence Chamber Orchestra and the Delaware County Symphony, and I know how to make beans the right way now, a great relief to my family.
My favorite books are The Chronicles of Narnia. C.S. Lewis expresses theological truth in a way which is more real than any other I know. I hear there is still a door to Narnia somewhere on Earth...
My high school private lesson teacher invited me to play in Youth for Christ pit orchestras along with her. I was overwhelmed with the sound of an orchestra, even a small one! I wanted to grow up to provide children with wonderful musical experiences like that, so I chose to study Music Education and become a music teacher.
