Why I Teach:

As an Artist/Educator, I continuously strive to facilitate a student-centered environment that encourages an open dialogue. My goal is to generate a free exchange of processes and ideas through the cross-fertilization of disciplines. I teach so that my work can illuminate the unobserved beauty of our day-to-day surroundings and the challenges facing our environment.
