Spirited artist and creative, whose work spans a wide spectrum of creative media and industries. My energetic attitude and focused leadership contribute to a creative environment, ensuring that all parties involved can benefit from my professionalism and skill. Comfortable in a wide array of work environments including studios, schools, classrooms, offices, shops, and set locations. A critical thinker, highly attentive to detail and accustomed to high-pressure settings. My personal philosophy is to cultivate and sustain an appreciation of the arts amongst others, as well as to spread my passion and a bit of magic to those around me.
It is most important to me, to be creating. To continually share with others what I have learned through my multifaceted and adventurous past, in both formal education, as well as my work/life experiences. Whether it is with fellow artists or creatives, students from any age and all socio-economic backgrounds, or even non-creatives, my goals remain to inspire by showing untypical ways of approaching discovery. I am satisfied when my broad skill set is able to aid others in the ways they desire, that best fit their needs.
By staying involved in any creative industry, I look forward to sharing with the world my unique and cultured abilities in art and education. Old-fashioned skill, craft, tangible, hands-on-art and creation is what makes me glow. I strive to be challenged, to challenge, to learn alongside others, to be a source of joy, empathy, creativity, unparalleled curiosity, understanding, awareness, and most importantly, to bring more otherworldliness to others and to funkify the mainstream.
