Currently, he serves as the band director of Cherokee High School; a position to which he brings over a decade of experience.

A natural born leader, Strom has played an instrumental role in the current and continued success of a great many programs including, but not limited to, the Memphis Grizzlies NBA drumline, The University of North Alabama, and the Northeast Mississippi Community College. At the University of North Alabama, Strom was a member of the Percussion Group, The World Percussion Ensemble, and held the position of principal percussionist with the UNA Wind Ensemble.

Towards the end of his undergraduate studies, Strom turned his focus towards electronics and audio engineering. This endeavor has allowed him the opportunity to work with The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, the University of North Alabama, The Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps, and a number of highly competitive high school programs across the Southeast.
