I've been lucky to pursue my goals as an educator in the classroom and out. Writing drill has always been a personal experience for me. I don't like the idea of churning out drill after drill and that's why I limit my clients. I truly want each one to be an original work that reflects that bands concept. This is my 15th year as a history teacher at Beloit Memorial High School in Beloit, Wisconsin. I truly do understand what it takes to work with students and collaborate with staff for the greater good.
I grew up marching both falls and summers with my high school in Prairie du Chien, WI and also marched the Imperial Scots of Dundee, Illinois before going to on to drum corps. I marched with both the Blue Stars and Phantom Regiment and it truly helped shape who I am today.
I've written drill for drum corps, winter guards and winter drum lines for the past 15 years. Some of the groups were as small as 25 winds and some as large as 190, it has been wonderful experience to design for all size programs.
In my 15 years of writing drill I've been a part of winning 15 state titles in three different classes with my clients and many second place finishes.
