I’ll be leading the children’s program at A Biselle KlezKamp this year, and cannot wait to dive into fun singing, arts & crafts projects and dancing with the kids!

I teach at an afterschool program, and design for various fair trade fashion and accessory companies based in Chicago. I am also anticipating starting a masters degree program in Art, Entertainment and Media Management at Columbia College Chicago this fall.
