STAFF & FACULTY DIRECTORY PROFILE
Fine and Performing Arts
Phone: (510) 577-9100
Started at O'Dowd:
I have a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art in San Francisco.
Why I Teach:
I teach because I love it. The moment that someone learns something new or is better because of something you say, that moment is the single greatest moment anyone can be a part of.
Most powerful teaching technique:
I really like one on one teaching, i do a lot of it. Art is so personal and specific to the individual that for me teaching student individually is the best.
Why are the subjects you teach important?:
For student sometimes creativity is so frustrating, because trying create something you only see in your head can be hard, its important for me to provide student with enough tools to allow them to realize anything they want to create.
