"I thoroughly enjoy my interaction with students; it is an integral part of my own artistic process. I am continually inspired by the talent and creativity of my students. Teaching at SCAD is such an immersive environment, where the exchange of innovative ideas is a daily routine. Coming from a family of educators, I have always had an interest in the collaboration between teacher and student. I feel lucky that I am able to walk into a classroom daily and contribute to a student's creative journey."
