I have an Associates degree in Visual Arts from Northern Essex Community College. This schooling acquainted me with many new artistic ideas and affirmed that my goals are to communicate with others vocally or through visual art. I chose not to continue on to a 4-year art school to pursue acting. My passion is absolutely to communicate. Few things are more enjoyable in life than meeting new people, conversing with old acquaintances, and basically creating and polishing personal relationships.

Thank you for showing an interest in our art and the furthering of your artistic training and appreciation.
