I began teaching after working in the Indianapolis television market for more than 20 years. I designed books, billboards and brochures for print, but mostly animations and graphics for on-air newscasts and specials. College prepared me to get a job, but my experience exploded in the television industry. I learned to art direct photo shoots, build sets, edit video and create timelines of animation. I worked on numerous events, including elections, Olympics, Indy 500, and Super Bowl. 

In my personal time, I still like to paint, draw, write and travel. I love to experience new things and be inspired by our amazing world. Even when I don’t have the time or budget to travel far, I have been in awe of many interesting places around our own community. I am rarely bored and my goals are to live each day with a purpose and try something new. I believe knowledge is power and we can all learn from each other and our surroundings.
