I have been teaching ESL in the United States and abroad for the past four years. I love teaching ESL. It has given me the opportunity to reach students from diverse backgrounds in every corner of the world.

My expertise is in the history of Painting, Asian Art, and Contemporary Art.
I am currently the Media Arts Coordinator and Lecturer of the Media Arts Program at Education First, Redondo Beach. I wrote the syllabus and teach the Video Production class in the program. I was an A-listed animator in Hollywood for 14 years. My credentials can be found on IMDB. My credits include: Shrek, Shrek2, Madagascar, Star Trek, Alice In Wonderland. I received my MFA from Hunter College in 1982, and began animating in 1996. I am often called upon to help directors with their films. I am happy to do it, because I love making movies!
