I am ecstatic to be returning to the JEL family as an educator. As a 2013 North Central Graduate, I got my start in production by taking a class in the JEL digital media arts department. I also was able to host two weekly radio shows on WJEL, and sportscast for basketball and football games. I then graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelors in Telecommunications with a concentration in Digital Audio, and a History minor. After that, I spent two years with WGEM-TV, the NBC affiliate in Quincy, Illinois. I am now teaching Music-Sound Production at the satellite program at Fishers High School. When I'm not teaching, I love discovering new music and sharing it with my wife Emily, and our cat Virginia. (Named after the Train classic "Meet Virginia".
