I have many years of experience teaching many aspects of 3D animation using Maya. From 2005 through 2013 I have taught courses at three different schools. I have finished a Master's of Fine Art in animation, which incorporated a heavy emphasis on writing and research. I would love to help with English literature, grammar, and vocabulary test prep!

I have developed a student centered learning approach that puts the individual student as the central, active role. I see myself as helping facilitate your success by finding the methods that will help you the most!

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop since 1999 and each new version of the program gives better and better tools. I love learning all the things that Photoshop can do! I have been teaching Photoshop since 2005. I have recently begun to use it as a professional portrait photographer and photo editor as well.


I have an undergraduate degree in Theater Design, and going even further back in time I was an AP English student with a serious love of literature. This love continues to this day, and I have used iBooks to work my way through many many classic novels while riding the train.

The undergraduate degree in theater design and my Master's degree in animation have required me to read many great works and address specific ways to analyze their meanings and study the content of the books.


I have Bachelor's degree in Computer Animation, which I received in 2001. From 2005 to 2013 I taught animation, texturing, lighting, modeling and compositing using Maya.
In 2013 I am completing my Master's degree in Computer Animation. While earning my graduate degree I completed a two and a half minute short created entirely with Maya. In addition, I am a Alias/Wavefront certified Maya character animation.


Vocabulary has long been a strong suit of mine. It may go back to my parents doing crossword puzzles, or it may be linked to my passion for literature. Every time I asked my dad what a word meant he'd say, "let's look it up in the dictionary!" Meanings of words have always stayed with me, which helps when reading Moby Dick or anything by Jane Austen.
