Art Teacher

I grew up in the finger lakes, exploring all forms of art, design, and photography. I attended Rochester Institute of Technology where I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Graphic Design and a Minor in Advertising and Public Relations. Post-graduation, I spent a year living in New Zealand and traveling to other countries. I eventually found my way back to my roots and began working as a multifaceted designer for creative agencies until starting my own design business. 

I have always had an interest and passion for teaching as I had a great variety of teachers throughout my high school and college years. They inspired me to want to help students flourish and to provide them with a positive influential guidance. 

When I’m not teaching, I am working with my clients to achieve their creative aspirations, spending time with my family, hiking at one of our many state parks, and cooking or baking something. I am also an avid traveler and have been to 29 countries, six continents, and I’m always itching to experience somewhere new.
