My friends know me as L.D. I'm a poet, author, dance educator, improviser, musician, yogi, massage therapist, and antagonist to all ne'er-do-wellers.
I'm no stranger to the stage having performed extensively in both dance and musical theatre productions throughout the US.
When not teaching or choreographing, I work as a licensed massage therapist and registered yoga teacher at Hands in Harmony in Cedar Rapids, IA. I am the proud father of Myles & Kohen, and Kodi, our adorable Shiba Inu.

SHOW CHOIR: 23 years & counting!
I am excited to be in my 23 year of choreographing. I absolutely love the work I do. It used to be about the best choreography awards or grand champion trophies, but not anymore. My joy as a choreographer and director is found in the connections made and encouragement I get to provide to Middle and High School students throughout Iowa and the surrounding states.
Former head coach of the UCLA women's gymnastics team Miss Val said it best, "Winning doesn't always equal success. Real success is developing champions in life for our world, win or lose."
