My Story

I grew in up in Northern Colorado where music was a major part of my life from very young.  I started my musical journey on violin and the piano, and I picked up the organ at the age of 15 when my local congregation in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was in need of an organist. I soon fell in love with the instrument.  I could spend hours at the church playing with the stops and getting to know the many colors of the organ.  

As an adult I studied Computer Science at Brigham Young University and continued to learn the organ from faculty there.  In my studies at BYU my love for the organ continued to deepen and I also developed a deep love for teaching after teaching at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.  This led me to change my career path and go on to earn a Master’s degree in organ performance from the University of Texas at Austin.  I now continue to work as an organist and teach organ and piano in the Atlanta area.
