I am a designer, technician, and craftsman, but above all, I am an artist and I have always been fascinated with aesthetics and artistic expression. My bachelor’s degree in design strongly influences my work in terms of the visual impact: thoughtful attention to composition, color theory, and design principles, but I also believe very strongly that my art needs to communicate on a conceptual and emotional level. I have also always had a very strong desire to share my knowledge and talents with others. In addition to being an artist, I have always been—and will always be—a teacher. I taught for the San Dieguito Union High School District for over 7 years, where I developed curriculum in fine art photography. I currently teach photography at Platt College and serve as a curriculum development and teaching consultant for the Education department at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA). I have also always been an avid student, pursuing as many educational opportunities as my schedule will allow. I strongly believe that the connections and collaborations that happen while learning and teaching are what keep me alive as an artist.
