I am an artist with a passion for new ideas. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Photography from the University of North Florida, and I spent 10 years as an Art Educator at Fleming Island High School in Fleming Island, Florida (a suburb of Jacksonville, FL.) My educational experience has allowed an exploration of various media, from both sides, student and teacher. I will always continue to be both. Currently, I am working on my photography and building a retreat center for the arts and environmental sustainability in Green Mountain, NC.
