"Both of my parents were educators and they instilled in me a belief that you cannot teach anything that you don't truly love. My mother loved math. My father loved music. I love light. I didn't always know that I loved it … more I didn't know you could move people with light as an artist and love that. I was lucky to discover that passion through wonderful teachers. There is a great joy in passing that passion on to another generation of artists. They are teachers, too. We all are."
