Hello there!

I am an experienced photography and art instructor. I teach photography as an after school instructor at an all girls charter school and I also educate people on how to use their cameras and basic to advance camera techniques. I went to Columbia College for 4 years to study Commercial Photography and Documentary photography. I also have experience with event and wedding photography, taking portraits in studios and outdoors. This is something that I am really passionate about and I want to help others find their own love for the art form.

Adobe Photoshop

While attending Columbia College I was able to receive extensive digital imaging techniques as well as learning new, and more efficient ways to organize layers, edit skin, develop quick edits through RAW. All while understanding the importance of a keen eye for detail.


I have 4 years experience taking computer courses using Mac computers and software. I own a MacBook Pro with the updated OS X and I teach friends and family members the features: shortcuts, multiple desktops, screen shots, video screen shares and other navigation tools. I sometimes use the QuickTime to record my computer screen to send short tutorials to people on how to use their Mac or other software.


I studied photography at an accredited 4 year college and received a Bachelors of Arts degree. I have experience teaching photography for 2 organizations for the past year. I have 5 years of experience learning analog and digital techniques, which helps me fully understand shutter, aperture, ISO, RAW and different types of films. My teaching is hands on and I like to show photo examples of different techniques so that they can fully understand how the functions work.

Video Production

I am a videographer and Photographer, I use my Nikon D90, and Canon Mark iii for professional videography but I also know how to navigate through other camera bodies. I am aware of the best fps to shutter speed ratio to have great video quality and uncompressed vs. compressed video formats. I previously took multimedia courses learning how to use Final Cut Pro 10 and 7 as well as Photoshop's Timeline feature and IMovie. I was a videographer for St. Sabina summer program, I worked with a team to conduct interviews with a studio setting as well as traveling to different sites to capture content for a short film about the program. I also have experience as a videographer for concerts and social events, using techniques like panning and rack focusing. Because I studied photography at Columbia, we also had to learn how to create video for commercial jobs in our future careers.


I have 7 years of creative writing and 4 years of journalism experience. I effectively assist students in revising, organizing and improving their writing style. My work has been featured in writing competitions and youth building programs. I recently studied Semiotics which allows me to deeply understand the thought process and the complexity of symbolism in creative writing. Semiotics also helps me to connect with students and improve their writing abilities.
