I am a high school Art teacher at Pewaukee High School in Pewaukee, WI. I teach traditional studio art along with digital and media arts including Digital Photography, Graphic Design and Animation. As an artist educator I like to explore multiple media, but especially love the intersection of old traditional darkroom and studio photo techniques with digital processes that result in creative prints. I like to push the boundaries of the photographic print creating final works on leather, fabric, wood and more.
