If we were meeting in person, we'd be in a cute corner of a local coffee shop or getting Indian food. I'd probably have with my favorite Rifle Co. notebook in one hand and a chai latte in the other. You'd probably soon learn that discussing personality types, travel, and world cultures make me happy.
Community is something I highly value. I am an absolute people person and love to work with other inspiring individuals (of diverse backgrounds and skills) to create extraordinary projects and learning experiences. Creative variety is so good for the soul!
Growth is such an important word for me. I prefer to center my teaching around the idea of process with a constructivist oriented focus rather than product and results oriented focus. Creating a safe learning environment is very important to me - so mistakes and imperfections are welcome. For those who want to create happy, independent, and life-long learners, learning to embrace natural growth is key.
Faith plays a big role in my life. There are so many deep parallels between spiritual concepts and the artistic process. I have found it to be so enriching and rewarding to view what I do from that perspective.
As an artist educator, it is my privilege to be inspired and to inspire others. There is so much good that art and creativity bring to the world. I want to pursue how they can impact communities and lives for the better.
