I grew up in a very musical family. My mother and siblings would perform together at every possible event that we could and it instilled in me a great love for music at a young age. I love writing original music on the guitar and the piano. I have been a private voice teacher for the last 8 years.

Having spent the last 10 years living in Idaho I am pleased to return home to Utah. I grew up in West Jordan, Utah and every time I drove through Southern Utah I would often mention to myself and others that, “I could live here!” I am the proud Papa of two wonderful kids, Ellie and Sterling. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, and heckling the T.V. I have been involved in over 3 dozen musical productions and spent the last 6 years in beautiful Island Park, Idaho operating Mack’s Inn Playhouse with my beautiful wife, Julie.
Comments on DRA
I am thrilled to be a part of Diamond Ranch Academy. Shortly after I began working here it was plain to see this place is some place special. I am impressed daily by both the students I have the opportunity to work with and the amazing staff. I have spent a majority of my career working for myself and am glad to get the opportunity join such a professional and caring team. I am a strong believer that the performing arts can be (and should be) wonderfully therapeutic for both the performers and audience.
