About Me-

This will be my tenth year at SLHS and twelfth year as a teacher overall, having spent time at both the elementary and middle school levels as well. I am currently teaching Drawing, Graphic Design and IB Art. I also serve part time as Instructional Coach at Standley Lake High School. In addition, I am a sponsor for the LINK program and the Solis club.

Prior to becoming a teacher I acquired my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado. I spent time in the field working as a graphic designer within the art department of a sportswear company, and also dedicated a portion of my time as a professional to establishing a large body of fine art that has been displayed in Denver galleries through group and solo exhibitions. Those experiences helped to develop my own art skills and give me a great foundation of what it takes to have successes in the art world - all of which I try to incorporate into my classes on a daily basis.
