Two things that I am passionate about are writing and teaching. I have worked with children at the point of learning letters and making their first words and every level through undergraduate research papers. I have no favorite group as everyone I work with, whether one-on-one or in a group or class, are my favorite at the time. I get a thrill when frustrated faces turn into smiles and even surprise when they see what they can do. I believe we all have an "inner writer" just waiting come be brought out and I want to be the ideas Pied Piper to help call them out. I have worked as a teacher in public schools, charter schools and a Montessori school. I have worked with adults in both professional settings and personally to help them learn to formulate their thoughts and dress them up in the best writing possible. As the CEO and business owner of Evangelison Productions, I have mentored emerging writers who feel ready to publish their work and help them with not only their writing, but illustrations and even marketing. I even served as a Judge of the ACT-SO program sponsored by the NAACP in poetry, script writing, and composition. I like to not only encourage writers, but to help them learn now to edit and improve their presentations, to help put their best writer's voice in the best wrapping. Teaching writers to edit their work can be just as challenging as teaching the writing itself. The mechanics of the language are a necessary part of work, but even more important is helping writers see the wealth of ideas just waiting to be brought out. Nothing quite calls to me the same way a blank sheet of paper and an ink pen does and I continue everyday to improve my own writing in every area I can. From poetry to lyrics to blogs, technical writing to short stories, children's books to motivational and inspirational pieces, I have let my writing continue to serve an important place in my life. I would like very much to work with anyone who wants or needs assistance in writing, not just because it is great, but because we live in a literate society and writing is essential! If you think you need help with writing, or you are a parent who is interested in finding a tutor for your child, you could not find a more interested partner! Let's take this journey together... the sky is the limit!

Besides writing and teaching, I am very interested in art and have been working to express myself in a number of mediums from drawing to paper mache, carving and painting, ceramics and textured art, and photography. As an Italian-American I love to cook and feed family and friends and curling up with a good book never gets old. I have an interest in animals, especially my pets, and I love being in nature.
