I truly have a passion for education and the joy of bringing out the creativity in people. Art and design permeate every part of my life and everything I do; it is who I am.
I am a multi-cultural, worldly person, I have traveled a lot throughout the world and lived and worked on four continents. I have also worked across many disciplines in art and design. I started out as a landscape architect and urban planner in Malawi in Africa, transitioned into exhibit design when I worked at the National Museums of Kenya in Nairobi and later at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, designing exhibits and graphics. I have also been a fine artist and teacher for over 25 years.
