<p>I have been teaching in public and private schools and in private studio for the past 20 years. I worked as the woodwind coach and guest conductor with the Peninsula Youth Orchestra from 2004-2010, am a guest conductor at the Cazadero Music Camp, and have worked at many other music programs and festivals as conductor and educator. I am the Music Director of the Oakland Municipal Band and direct the Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble at Aragon High School in San Mateo. In addition to teaching and conducting, I freelance around the Bay Area as a woodwind player and vocalist and have performed with many celebrated artists and ensembles including Robin Williams, The Grateful Dead, The Drifters, Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony and the San Francisco Opera Orchestra. I am listed in the national biographical publication, Marquis Who's Who in America and am actively involved in the California Association for Music Education.</p>
