LESS TALK! MORE ACTION!

My approach is to get students engaged in creating from the get-go!
As a teacher, project development specialist, and artist, my goal is to inspire people to learn through creation.
Whether the skill is writing, making a movie, recording a radio program, or selling art, the most powerful way to learn it is by doing it!
I help people develop successful artistic projects that reflect their own skills, abilities and passions.
