How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
What do you want people to know most about you?
•I became aware of my artistic skills in high school while growing up inRoosevelt,New York. I attended weekend art classes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a teen and college student. I like to capture the emotions of my subject in all my creative pieces whether it is photography or figure drawing. The majority of my creative work is also used in my full time job as a middle school language arts teacher. I write for enjoyment and paint for inspiration and therapy.
