Private Story

Over the course of fifteen years, I've founded photography programs, designed  curriculums, mentored emerging artists, and taught in seven countries.

My students win awards, publish their images, and exhibit their work internationally.

I've taught at institutions including The University of Michigan, The International Center of Photography, NYC SALT, the Maine Media Workshops, Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, Espacio Fundacion Telefonica, The French American Cultural Exchange, Unicef Haiti, Foto Baryo-Philippines, and the New York City public schools, among others.
