What a fun time we had photographing Danny, a current senior at Cypress Lakes HS. Although since Danny’s mom, Kathy has been my assistant for several years, Danny did have some insight into my craziness and he kept me on my toes – sometimes literally because he is quite tall!
As a four year band member to the Cypress Lakes HS band, Danny has played several percussion instruments, including the marimba, snare, cymbals, etc., and has also participated in the Drumline and traveled to many in state competitions. In addition to loving to “bang on things” – his mom’s words (he apparently figured out that window blinds can be a fun thing to create “music” at an early age), Danny also plays the piano and really enjoys playing the Ukulele. He is self taught on the Ukulele and when he plays it, it reminds him of his trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago.
Danny is also a member of the Cypress Lakes Varsity swim team and he plans to be a lifeguard this summer. In what little spare time remains for Danny, he enjoys reading and is currently working to complete his Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout project .
After graduation, Danny plans to attend a year of college and then begin his two year mission. We are sure that whatever the future holds for Danny, he will spread his wit and humor to everyone he encounters – and he might even teach them to keep a steady beat!
