^^^^ In October 2020, I assisted in the painting of the Black Camden Lives Matter street mural, in partnership with Walls for Justice and the National Stop the Violence Campaign. My role in this project was instructing volunteers and leading the chalking of the entire lettering down five city blocks. The Black Camden Lives Matter Street Mural is located at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Camden, New Jersey and extends down Broadway Avenue five city blocks. 

^^^ During Fall 2020, I painted a book ark for the Camden County Pop Up Library- an organization that provides free access to books in Camden County, New Jersey. The book ark I painted is currently installed at the intersection of Atlantic Ave and Broadway Ave in Camden, New Jersey.

^^^ During Spring 2020, I created a series of food bank signage in response to the COVID19 pandemic for the Mighty Writers. These 8 hand painted signs were doubled sided and bilingual and went to food bank locations in Center City Philadelphia, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and Camden, New Jersey.

^^^ During the summer of 2019, I taught Visual Arts to gifted students at the Summer Institute for the Gifted at Bryn Mawr College. In class, we learned about contemporary artists and how to apply their ideas and artistic processes to create our own unique and individual artwork.

^^^ The images above were taken during March 2017 when I led as an Installation Technician of Jenny Holzer Truisms for "Person of the Crowd: Contemporary Art of Flanerie Exhibition" at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For this project, I led an experienced team of five artists to install Jenny Holzer Truisms on temporary wall locations in Center City, Philadelphia, employing the guerrilla image-spreading technique of wheat paste.

^^^ During the Summer of 2017, I worked as a Visual Arts Instructor at the Center for the Creative Arts in Hockessin, Delaware. During my time at this non-profit, I taught foundation through advanced levels of drawing and painting to children ages 5-16 years old. The photos directly above are from my Kindergarten-level Drawing and Painting class at the Center for the Creative Arts. 

^^^ This group of images were taken during my time as Assistant Professor for the class "Big Picture: Mural Arts in Philadelphia", an Undergraduate Fine Arts course offered at the University of Pennsylvania. In these photos, students from "Big Picture: Mural Arts in Philadelphia are touring local significant mural sights to learn the process of designing a mural and positively engaging with the community surrounding the mural. I have also been involved with the City of Philadelphia's Mural Artist Training Program from 2015-2017 where I have taught novice mural artists the steps behind a successful community mural project.
