Welcome to my bio page! My career in education began as a Middle and High School art teacher in Michigan, where I taught for many years. During that time, digital art became a medium that I was greatly interested in, and I studied it in depth before eventually leaving the teaching field for a time to open a successful photography business, where I enjoyed working with clients photographing a broad range of events. I really enjoy using the visual medium to tell a story, and animation was also a strong interest that developed during this time. When our family relocated to Savannah in 2008, I took the opportunity to study animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I earned my Master of Fine Arts in Animation in 2012. I am very excited to join the faculty here at DSC, and I look forward to working with the students to bring their ideas and stories to life.
