It's a great privilege to teach. I consider myself most fortunate to be just 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 the ground floor of this artistic journey with these fine folks. It's a great honor I take very seriously.



Collaborating with these artists on a daily basis, helping them get where they want to go, is truly a labor of love and the reason why I am here. With 28+ years industry experience under my belt, and 19+ years teaching, I am uniquely qualified to mentor and guide each of my students on their specific chosen career path. 



I take great pride in celebrating our alumni successes and bragging about our graduates to pretty much whoever will listen.There's just no feeling on this earth like the satisfaction and pride you get as you watch your former student's names scrolling in the credits of a feature film or on TV. 


That same feeling, when you get to put your hard-earned money down on the counter, buying a comic or children's book that they worked on. It gives me a great swell of pride like no other.               

They made it! They're living their dream. I had a very small hand in helping them achieve that success. That's what makes all the work so worth it. SO WORTH IT!!

When people ask me what I've worked on lately, I drop a long list of Alumni names, and the films, cartoons and comics that my former students have worked on. THEY are who have been working on, lately!

Enough about my perspective. To get a sense of what previous students thought of their time spent with me, please feel free to check out some generous Alumni testimonials
