I have been an adjunct professor at Lord Fairfax Community College for 21 years. I have been recognized as an Outstanding Secondary Art Educator for the state of Virginia.

Occasionally I do wedding and portrait work on the side. I exhibit my work regularly. My program is highly recognized.

Learn as much as you can. 
Work as hard as you can and make as many connections as you can.
