About this pro

Hi! Thank you for visiting my educator's page. I've been a practicing photographer since high school, and have (2) degrees in imaging. I have served as an adjunct university professor at SUNY Brockport, Monroe Community College (Brighton, NY), University of Notre Dame and Frederick Community College. I'm good at understanding learning needs and tailoring solutions based on clear and engaging interactions. 

I love the ah-ha moment when someone learns something new. I appreciate how images and the use of the camera are embedded in nearly every aspect of our moden life.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I firmly believe in getting to know what each student can envision as an outcome from our learning experience. I want to know what subject matter you like to photograph, and what photographic work that you view. I want to know - What is your take on our visual world?


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Undergraduate degree in photography and digital imaging from Shepherd University, Shepherdstown, WV (2002)

Masters degree in imaging arts and science from Rochester Institute of Photography, Rochester, NY (2009)

Artist-in-Residence with the Bubbler Program at Madison Public Library, Madison, WI

Apple Creative Pro (photography & art + design)

I started teaching at the college level during my graduate studies as a teacher of record at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY.

The fall after graduation with a master's degree, I started teaching (2) sections of darkroom photography at Monroe Community College. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with kids during my artist-in-residence with their Bubbler program at Madison Public Library. A majority of my work is with adults, but I'm open to working with anyone and at any skill-level. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Know what you like - such as films, books, music and art. Be willing to have an in-depth conversation about what you like to photograph, and how to set goals to achieve your vision.
