I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania to earn my BFA in Applied Media Arts / Animation degree. I am also proud to have received my NC and VA Secondary Educators License from East Carolina University, as well as my MFA From Norfolk State University in Visual Studies.
I teach drawing, painting, and graphic design at Kecoughtan High School in Hampton, VA. I constantly encourage my students to explore a community outreach and business-minded center to their artistic creations. Professionally, I paint large scale murals, such as the Naval Station Norfolk 100th Anniversary Installation in downtown Norfolk, VA. I have also exhibited my artwork in multiple states and famous museums such as the MOCA, Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chrysler Fine Art Museum.
I am an over energetic, gregarious educator, with a passion for fine arts as well as the commercial arts. I strive to achieve the best for my students, to ensure that they leave my classroom with a heightened level of appreciation of the arts through hard work and rigorously enjoyable projects.
