As a student of art from an early age, I attended private art lessons outside of the traditional classroom settings, and have been imbued with an energetic and personable sense of interaction with students and young adults. It is more enjoyable for me, and very often for the student too, to make the act of learning a structured and productive activity, while maintaining common interests and setting a relaxed atmosphere to learn in. Whether the student is just beginning or advanced in the subject of art, I enjoy imparting the knowledge I have acquired over the years and subsequently learning myself with those that are under my tutelage.

Much can be said about learning art, and one of the most important things about the act of creation, in my opinion, is the process. The process of creation is not just a means to the end but rather the appreciation of work itself. If one learns to appreciate the 'idea' of work itself through whatever medium they find fit, they will ultimately learn crucial lessons that can be applied elsewhere throughout life. The creation of art and the many shapes it takes provides this valuable process of learning, understanding and enjoying. Through whatever form a student enjoys, it is never impossible to engage and involve a student in learning something as malleable as art.

I have taught at the secondary level (6-12) and am well equipped with tools that will engage and challenge students in fun and interesting ways. Ultimately, they will not see learning as a chore, but rather, as an activity of which they can always rely on for self fulfillment.

Art History, Drawing, Painting


I have been drawing since I was 6 and currently continue to do so. I am now 28 and graduated from a traditional arts college in Old Lyme Conn., called Lyme Academy College of Arts and have received a B.F.A. in figurative studies, one of three colleges providing this unique degree.


I have been painting since I was 12 and currently continue to do so. I am now 28 and graduated from a traditional arts college in Old Lyme Conn., called Lyme Academy College of Arts and have received a B.F.A. in figurative studies with a major in painting.


I have played soccer since i was 4 years old and coached a Junior Varsity team in Hyde Park, N.Y. at the Haviland Middle School. My team did exceptionally well going 7-1-1. Through this particular process I learned much about how to apply understanding and practice to elements of the game of soccer.

Table Tennis

when attending school in Connecticut, I was adamant about maintaining my interest in table tennis, and attended table tennis meets, in addition to playing daily. It is a favorite past time of mine and would enjoy imparting my knowledge of the game upon someone else.
