Dedicated to a life of learning, my professional and personal interests showcase a commitment to continued education in many forms. Graduating from Texas Christian University with a degree in art and photography, as well as a completed thesis on night photography, has provided a humble and eager approach to life and to the investigation into all other subject matter. With camera and palette in tow, my commitment to personal growth, in body, heart, and mind has sent me looking inward and at other times sent me miles, by plane or foot, over mountains both literal, and symbolic in form. As a former highschool teacher and outdoor educator, I now more greatly understand the benefits of practical, field-based, learning experiences. The utility of experiential learning extends beyond reflective practices and serves to catalyze further artistic inspiration. Compelled to share this knowledge, I seek classrooms both indoors, and out, with an earnest desire to make a difference in the lives of people.
