I have taught paper sculpture workshops for kids and adults at Yeshiva University Museum, The Rye Arts Center, The Creative Center, Bellevue Hospital, Voelker Orth Museum & Bird Sanctuary, The Brooklyn Brainery and Au Papier Japonais in Montreal. I have a BFA from Alfred University, and an MPS from Pratt Institute.
