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.
