Creator of the EXPOSURE project funded by a grant with the purpose of creating a model photography curriculum in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati impacting the future.  The genesis of EXPOSURE was a local, national and international photo outreach for at orphaned and abandoned children in collaboration with UC students.  Students traveled to Costa Rica, Africa, Mexico, Los Angeles and Cincinnati teaching children photography skills in exchange for their story.  A professional internship between Cincinnati Country Day School and the University of Cincinnati was established.  In addition to the photo outreach a visiting artist series was established. EXPOSURE produced three publications documenting the project.
