I moved to Nashville from Woodland Hills California after the Northridge earthquake in 1994. I have always felt an extreme need to give, and have always felt I am a true artist. I began to take my relationship with art seriously in high school at Hume Fogg Academic, when I discovered I needed art.
I followed my dreams to Rhode Island School of Design, where I graduated and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2008. In 2009 I continued my studies at The Hellenic Institute of the Arts. In 2010, my journey took me to Bordeaux, France, where I lived for two years, completing one year of Graphic Design at the École de Communication Visuelle.
In 2011, I moved back to Nashville where I work as an independent contractor teaching art, and where I continue to pursue my many passions.
