I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2006 with a B.F.A in Art Education with an emphasis in ceramics. I worked as an art teacher in Prince Georges County, Maryland for four years. I taught adult ceramics courses at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) and youth ceramics at the Sheridan School during the summer. I also occupied studio space at Creative Clay Pottery in Springfield, Virginia. Most recently I have been freelancing as a substitute teacher for the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio.
