Learning to see—it is what photography teaches me to do every day.

To notice color, line, light, shape. To pay attention to movement, to pattern, to rhythm.

Photography invites me to be surprised by the everyday world, and to be playful with it.

In addition to practicing photography, I am an arts educator with an MA Art Education. Teaching the visual arts is very exciting for me, as I design interdisciplinary curricula to promote deep, lasting understanding of concepts, ideas, processes and techniques while guiding students to cultivate visual literacy. An advocate for the arts, I also serve on my city’s arts commission. On the side, I translate literature from French and Spanish into English.
