Academic Advisor for the School of Art

As a sculptor/painter, I’m usually making a mess in my studio most days.  Unfortunately, I can’t seem to abandon my industrial materials which are the cause for the chaos. But besides making art, I have a daily ritual of journaling and using soul tarot to meditate.  I also enjoy fostering dogs, listening to records while I cook, sipping tea, and relaxing next to my most recent candle purchase.

Educational Philosophy

I believe education exists beyond the classroom and is a continuous life-long journey involving self discovery.  The resources available to you through higher education are invitations to reach beyond familiarity and go deeper within your quest for knowledge.  Maybe the most valuable lesson you could learn is growth is not linear.  So embrace your failures, honor your success, and be open to new experiences.  You are exactly where you need to be.
