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 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 25 years industry experience under my belt, and 18 years teaching, I am uniquely qualified to help guide each of my students on their specific chosen career path.

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 graduates to pretty much whoever will listen.

There's just no feeling on this earth like the one you get as you watch your former students names scrolling in the credits of a feature film or on TV. Or 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 small hand in helping them achieve that success.

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