I grew up in Syracuse, NY and lived in the Harrisburg area (while in High School) and then attended IUP.
After years of substitute teaching, I worked for 14 years with an agency in Indiana that supports people with developmental disabilities.
I was hired at Homer-Center in 1999 and I have been teaching elementary art ever since.
In 2011-12 I also taught Graphic Arts and Printing at the high school.
My wife and I have 5 children ranging in ages from 32 to 18.
I paint, run, hunt, throw frisbee, play softball and baseball, read, and participate in other teaching-related activities.
It is a joy to work with your children - thanks for entrusting me to their ART education!
PS - I have an identical twin so if I seem to overlook you when I see you in public, IT probably ISN'T ME!
