I am a Pittsburg High School Graduate. I attended Diablo Valley, Los Medanos Junior College, Graduate of California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland and USC Berkeley. I have been teaching Photography, Graphic Design, and Visual Arts since 1982 in Antioch School District, prior to Antioch.
I received the following scholarships during my highschool and college education:
Disney Graduate Scholarship
I've worked for Disney and MGM studios creating cartoons, character designing and costuming for movies. I have also taught at Costume College in VanNuys California in the summer. I love to create costumes for historical reenactment. This brought an interest that later became a second career as a Renaissance Reenactment Production Producer and acting Guild Master. My acting troop has been used for several movies as actors behind sceens in movies such as the Hobbit and Outlander battle sceens.
I've been teaching at Deer Valley since 2013.
Subjects I teach at Deer Valley at this time are Digital Photography, Digital Art, and Fundamental Visual Art.
