After retiring from the military after 21 years of service I went to ODU. In 2013 I received my Bachelors in Fine Arts degree with a dual focus in Sculpture and in Photography. In 2015 I received my Master in Fine Arts from the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, VT. in 2017, after receiving my Virginia teaching certification I began working here at GTMS as the Visual Arts teacher. In 2020 I had one of my sculptures selected to be shown in the 2020 National Art Educators Association Juried Art Show.
As a professional musician and as a soldier I have travelled around the world. I have been fortunate to experience different cultures and their forms of art. I am interested in all forms of creative expression and I love to help my students work to find their artistic voice.
