About Marie
I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a grea
t knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.

I really enjoy teaching, and after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more hands-on, and I have been enjoying teaching sewing and fashion design. It is rewarding to pass on a skill that used to be taught from generation to generation, but that less and less people are learning nowadays.

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

I'm a certified teacher and a national ranked chess player, with over a decade of teaching experience. I have taught 100's of kids from grades K-8. Furthermore, I also have extensive experience teaching adults.

I graduated from the # 2 ranked university in the country on a scholarship. I also served as the president of my university's successful chess club.
For many years now, I have been teaching chess full-time here in Miami to grades K-8. I really enjoy teaching and my school's team has won many prestigious titles and trophies.

This past year my students' team placed in the top ranks, at the "Florida States Chess Championship," in section K-8. Additionally, my students have also won several 1st place trophies in many local tournaments.

My passion for chess is really manifested though my teaching style and it's never a dull moment wh

I have the credentials, experience and knowledge to maximize my student's potential.

About Hugh
I spend hundreds of hours a month playing the greatest game in the world and could not be happier. I am grateful to have had the exciting opportunity to travel around the country these past few months playing the game I love. I posses a burning desire to become the best player in the world and will not stop until I succeed. I love to share thoughts and strategies with fellow players that I respect and am always evolving my game. I am playing great “winning” poker right now, but always see room to advance my knowledge and experience of the game. My hand reading ability is very accurate and gets better and better each day. They say you learn something new each day and with this very complex game I can say I firmly believe that. I was born to play this game with the greats. Poker is a true gift for me and I would love to have the opportunit
y to share my gift with you.
