I taught several summer programs in Digital Arts and Photography to entering 7th through 9th graders at the Harvard-Westlake Middle School in Los Angeles, California. I was also the go-to substitute teacher for the Visual Arts Departments at Harvard-Westlake's Middle and Upper Schools for five years, teaching drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and video arts.
Design is not often taught below high school and is only recently being taught in high school. When I decided to incorporate teaching basic design principles into the summer digital arts classes I taught to middle schoolers, I was hopeful that my students would grasp them. They not only grasped them, but they took off and ran with them.
Yet to be added
I attended art school and film school, graduating with a BFA in Film from NYU. I received my computer arts training at UCLA's School of Continuing Education.
I worked for many years as a motion picture editor before becoming a graphic designer and substitute teacher.
