As an artist educator, I empower students to freely explore and express complex ideas and questions through looking at and making art, recognizing its power as catalyst for personal and communal transformation. I encourage students to see art in new and exciting ways as well as learn artistic techniques, processes, and methods. I utilize multimodal teaching approaches designed to develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills. I facilitate engaging and collaborative learning spaces that are relevant and responsive to my students needs. I have researched and taught from various collections and exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, and The Museum  of Modern Art. In addition, I have also organized and taught in cafes, classrooms, parks, gardens, historic houses, and islands across New York City and San Francisco.
