In 2012 Corey graduated with a B.S in Mathematics from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. After graduation he was a high school math teacher for two years before attending Western Iowa Tech Community College in Sioux City, Iowa to study band instrument repair where he was on the Deans List both semesters (4.0 GPA). Corey primarily plays French horn, but enjoys playing flute, bassoon, oboe, clarinet, and trumpet as well. Being very interested in both woodwind and brass instruments, he likes to be well rounded and enjoys being able to work on all of the different types of instruments that come to his bench. Outside of work he likes to spend his time traveling with friends and learning about interesting topics including but not limited to etymology(the study of the origin of words and the way in which their meanings have changed throughout history), mathematical theory, crafting, other languages(Spanish, Korean, and sign language), octopi, random facts or ANYTHING else that catches his attention.
