    This year I teach Digital Imaging (Adobe Photoshop),  Computer Graphics: Illustration & Design (Adobe Illustrator), and Intro to 3D Modeling and Animation (3D Modeling and animation with Maya, Sculptris and other software). All of my digital art classes are in the B225 Art Computer lab, which is in the art hallway next to South's Auditorium.  You can find more information about my specific classes through the links to the left. 
    I am the teacher sponsor for the following clubs at South:

    A little about me:
    The 2021-22 school year is my 12th year at CB South, my 20th year in Central Bucks and my 27th year teaching overall.
    Besides teaching all three digital art classes, I have previously taught Intro to Ceramics, Ceramics 1 and Drawing & Painting 1 & 2 at CB South. I also taught Visual Arts (7 & 8) and PEN at Unami Middle School, and I was the sponsor of the Unami Claymation Club, yearbook, newspaper and set design. I have also taught classes at CB West and Tamanend, as well as summer art classes in the Community School and weekend art courses elsewhere. 

    I am looking forward to a great school year!  Feel free to contact me with any questions or information that you need.
