My approach to teaching is similar to that of a playground see-saw where I am sitting at one end and my student at the other. It is only when both my student and myself sit on the opposite ends of the see-saw, do we truly see how we both approach a photograph. I thrive on collaboration as an artist. I carry this same attitude over into my classroom.

As an artist, I enjoy bringing to light the beautiful details of ordinary things. We as a society, seem to be constantly wrapped up in our lives; we forget to stop and appreciate the everyday things. To ensure I do not fall in to the same type of complacency, I push myself to try new techniques, portraying the freshness of my photographs. The two pieces displayed here, Aldente #2, and One Percent Please, are both printed on multiple, inkjet transparencies and layered offset to provide my viewer a new way of looking at the ordinary.
