My goal is to empower ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

I'm a multimedia artist and educator based in Rome, Italy and a tenured Associate Professor of Digital Media at The American University of Rome where I also run its Film and Digital Media Program. I have 15+ years of university and adult education teaching experience in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Besides teaching at Skillshare and other online platforms to students in over 155 countries, I'm also a Course Facilitator for the UN-mandated University for Peace (Costa Rica) through their Centre For Executive Education.

My work is exhibited internationally and online and has received a number of awards. I earned my MFA from Pratt Institute in Computer Graphics and Interactive Media and also hold a BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
