As a teacher, I emphasize the individual needs of a student to create a structured learning environment, maximize their personal potential, and allow them to overcome their weaknesses. I have tutored students in many subjects, working with a culturally diverse group of people every day. My passion for their success inspired them to excel in these life-enriching experiences.
On my off days I like spending my time in nature like the old transcendentalists "tree bathing", as the Japanese call it. If weather is not permitting I would be painting, writing music, or poetry indoors. I am also the full-time drummer of the instrumental progressive rock/post-metal band Sioum, formed in Chicago, A.D. 2010.
I have dedicated my whole life to art, therefore, it is essential that I litter the world in as much beauty as I can during my lifetime.

In no particular order; drumming, painting, writing poetry, learning about history, science, technology, and multiple cultures, truthfully anything creative and challenging. I believe variety is the spice of life. I like to stay on my toes and ready for the next big adventure!
