I grew up in a small town called Valrico where I spent a great deal of time playing my trumpet as loud as my mother would let me. I attended Florida State University where I majored in Trouble (Go Noles!) I have worked for Apple since 2002. My passions are my family, teaching, taking pictures, & music. I have played trumpet in orchestras, jazz bands, marching bands, DCI and have a new love for electro fusion beats. "enjoy life, there's plenty of time to be dead"
