Anything else we should know? My success in music and in life is both a result of my private teacher Peter Daniel and the MTHS music department. Peter has mentored me since sixth grade and has taught me so much. The choir director TJ Sullivan has encouraged me and helped me along my way. Last but certainly not least, Darin Faul has been one of the biggest influences in my life and has given me the life and musical knowledge that has allowed me to be successful in my craft. I would just like to thank these three men who have shaped me as a person.
