First year at SCAD:

"My inspirations for teaching are many. I love to learn, and I love to explore new ideas and differing philosophies that help grow me as a human being. I want to share that passion with others. For me, teaching is about empowering others to find their potential not only as artists but also as fellow human beings."


"Instilling passion and encouragement to those students whose true desire is to make art and photography their life and their livelihood; maintaining an active exhibition record while teaching."
