What do you do in your current job and what do you enjoy about it?I sing about what the Lord has done and is doing in our lives. I love connecting to the Lord and to people through the gifts he has given to me. Playing rock n’ roll is fun, too!

How did your Judson experience influence you professionally? What were your favorite parts of being a Judson student?
I particularly enjoyed History of Rock and Roll with Dr. Warren Anderson, but everything about Judson helped me. Really!

What are the strengths of your major/program at Judson?
As a music education major, I had lots of hands-on experience. There were regular opportunities to learn to fly with humility and fall with grace, and the professors were great people to study under.

What advice can you give to current and prospective students about their time at Judson?
Invest where you are.
