Art has always been an important part of my life, studying the topic extensively in high school, attending youth programs at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, and obtaining a degree in Fashion Merchandising. After trying my hand in the fashion industry, I pursued my desire to see the world and accepted an English teaching position in Kunming, China, in 2012, where I taught adolescents and adults. Since then, I've lived in the Middle East, Europe, and have visited over 30 countries and all continents (excluding Antartica) while teaching ESL. Prior to Covid-19, I went back to the art world by studying and obtaining a degree in Mural Art & Painting at Escola Massana in Barcelona, Spain. I have seen firsthand the role that art can play in the real world and am excited to help students at CGUHS learn a variety of techniques, mediums, and forms, as well as how art can and does beautify our world.
