It's a great privilege to teach. I consider myself most fortunate to be one of the incredible artist/educators that teach and mentor these talented and creative young artists each day. 
I love doing what I do and being on this artistic journey with these fine folks is a great honor.

Collaborating with these artists on a daily basis, helping them get where they want to go is a labour of love and the reason why I am here. With 20+ years industry experience under my belt, and 15 years teaching, I am uniquely qualified to guide each of my students on their chosen career path.

As previously mentioned, I take great joy in teaching my current students every day, but also take great pride in celebrating our alumni successes and bragging about our grads to whoever will listen.

There's just no feeling on this earth like the one you get as you watch your former students names rolling in the credits of an animated feature. Or when you get to put down your money buying a comic book that they worked on. It gives me a great swell of pride like no other. They made it! They're dream has come true!

Enough about my perspective - to get a sense of what students, past and present think of me in the classroom, feel free to check out some Alumni testimonials here or try here for some previous reviews from past students...
