I learned to ring handbells at All Saint's Episcopal Church a few years ago. I started ringing with Bells of the Desert in 2018, and have been enjoying the opportunity to learn challenging music. I like the collaborative nature of the bells and enjoy the camaraderie of the group. I took piano lessons when I was younger and played the flute with various bands and orchestras in high school and college. I'm married with two daughters in college, and in addition to music I enjoy reading and hiking.
