In 2005 I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia Pennsylvania. With a major in Crafts, I concentrated on Jewelry and Metals, focusing on an art based study of jewelry.
Following my passion for jewelry, I continued my education at the Gemological Institute of America, where I successfully completed the Diamond Graduate course. While working for jewelers for the next year, I continued my personal jewelry work, and searched for a design based jewelry program abroad. My search led me here, to the Creative Academy.
