1. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?
I am an artist and educator. I’ve been making art my whole life and I’ve been lucky to have friends and family who started calling me an artist at an early age. I am a Professor of Visual Arts at Penn State Altoona as well and have been teaching there since 2002.
2. What was your first job?
Babysitting, unofficially. Officially I was a basketball referee for tiny tots.
