I have a background as Art Director in the Film industry as well as a perfumer specializing in African aromatics. I have seen both my children grow and blossom at NLA, so I was naturally drawn to the wonderful supporting culture that exists at the school. It is a privilege for me to work with young people, and to help nurture and facilitate the development of their individual abilities and talents. My aspiration as a teacher reflects what John Steinbeck once said,
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
