Why I Teach:

Teaching allows me to understand where we are as a society as a whole - our strengths and failures. It is the barometer that reveals who is truly free. Art involves trusting yourself; it is my hope that through my humble guidance, my students will trust their creative gestures, in order to trust themselves as they move through life.
