Hi there! I'm so stoked to head up the Old Town School Teen Arts Camp. I was born in Chicago and grew up in the suburb Palatine, but my first memories were in the Philippines where I lived for my first 2 years. I'm a teaching artist who goes into classrooms to teach painting, drawing, photo, video, and theater. I also teach writing and perform with Barrel of Monkeys. (Come check out a Monday night show sometime!) I was a proud and excited counselor in the OTS Arts Camp for 5 summers, and in 2015 I started leading the Teen Arts Camp! I enjoy bike rides, insightful conversation, making & groaning at puns, dancing like crazy, food, TED talks & story podcasts, playgrounds, strumming my ukulele, and I'm even starting to write songs. (Collaboration is always welcome!) I'm looking forward to all of us growing and learning together this summer!
