Soon after he joined Wasatch Independent for their 2020 winter guard season. He then became very poor and ran out of money for college so he enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves working as a chemical operations specialist where he still serves to this day. After graduating advanced individual training, he came back to CHHS as their assistant color guard director. In the winter of 2021-2022 he took over as CHHS's head color guard director. He knows the program and the students well and hopes to inspire them to continue their music and dance education because of the benefits it brought him in his life.

Juliet (JuJu) knows 7 things: eat, sleep, poop, be grumpy, be adorable, roll over onto her stomach, and color guard. She has been in color guard almost literally since birth, more than any of us can say, and gives our program a boost of serotonin and hope for the future.
