I acquired a fine arts degree in Sequential Art (cartooning, storyboards, children's book illustration) from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2004 and a fine arts degree in Art Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2011.

I completed my student teaching at the Benito Juarez Community Academy, where I co-taught digital design classes and photography classes.

I volunteered and taught as a drawing instructor at both the Rumble Arts Community Center in Humboldt Park and Right Brain Studios in Oak Park from 2010 to 2012, and I currently work full time as a designer, installer and printer for a sign company in downtown Chicago. I also work freelance as an illustrator/designer.

My tutoring style is loose, but controlled; I prefer to get to know the student and allow their interest and level of need pilot the lessons. I also believe in being prepared, and I often design back up lessons or modify lessons on the fly to fit the needs of the student. My main area of interest is in design and cartooning and I prefer to use pop culture, film, cartoons, comic books, etc. as a method of lesson delivery. Anything to keep the lesson fresh and relevant to the learner.
