What have you been up to?
I live and work in LA in the film and music industry. I make my living as a composer, songwriter, orchestrator, and in music preparation (with a few other music-related odd jobs thrown in). I've had the great opportunity to compose for feature films, award-winning short films, TV, write songs for Disney and Amazon Prime, orchestrate on a Netflix short film, and supervise the "in-concert" premieres of films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, How To Train Your Dragon, and Skyfall. I love the huge variety of gigs I get to participate in and the many talented people I get to work alongside.
What brought you to LCL?
I knew that after elementary school (at Divine Redeemer Lutheran) I wanted to continue my Christian education. I was familiar with LCL mainly through the Saturday morning band program Mrs. Garlock ran for the area middle schoolers. We rehearsed and performed in the old YMCA building at the time. I also remember the trailers in the DR parking lot when I attended elementary school, so LCL had been in my life even before I started high school. I knew I liked the teachers and the environment and looked forward to attending there as a student.
What did you value most as a student at LCL?
I valued the close relationship with my teachers as well as the friends I made at LCL. Every teacher in every class always made themselves accessible to every student, which is not an easy task. I never felt like I was a nuisance for staying after class to ask questions, or to just hang out and chat about life. I believe the great environment that allowed me to make so many friends among my peers started with the open and welcoming space the teachers and staff created.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
In consideration of the unprecedented health situation in Wisconsin and the nation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that our three high schools, Milwaukee Lutheran, Martin Luther and Lake Country Lutheran, will not conduct face-to-face instruction with students beginning March 23rd (when we are scheduled to return from Spring Break) until further notice.
Beginning Monday, March 23rd, our schools will conduct instruction and education through virtual/digital learning opportunities. No students should report to school during this time. We will continue to monitor health conditions and make determinations about when it is safe and appropriate to return to the school campus to resume normal operations.Read More
Have you considered the magnitude of your name? Your name is far more powerful and significant than just the characters that represent it. A name is a word that represents everything you are known by, including your past, present, and future self. As the board of directors drew up plans for a new school in the Western Suburbs of Milwaukee, a name was needed. There were many ideas tossed around and eventually it was agreed to name the school after the community in which it was intended to serve, Lake Country. The addition of “Lutheran” was added to signify the basis of the school’s existence, which is founded on biblical truth.Read More
