the artful dodger


after years of living internationally in places like india, singapore, puerto rico, and brazil; leading seminars on human rights, social justice and environmental issues; coordinating international baccalaureate creativity, action and service projects; teaching a meta-cognition course called ‘the theory of knowledge’; coaching ultimate frisbee; leading trips... all the while preaching >>> ‘follow your passion’.



it’s time to model this philosophy with yet another (re)incarnation.



this blog will be an attempt at chronicling the adventures of a gypsy educator artist (me) based out of dallas, texas, currently teaching full time at the new IMAGINE INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF NORTH TEXAS. and, by design, there just may be commentary about sustainability, accountability, authenticity and most importantly, BEAUTY.



thank you for your time, interest, support, bandwidth, love...



blessed travels,

We hope you’ll take a moment or two to do something kind today for our planet in honor of Earth Day. 
Pick up some litter, volunteer a few hours at a local park or wildlife refuge, or plant a tree. It doesn’t matter how large or small, every act of kindness counts.
As Albert Einstein (a pretty smart fellow!) once said: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”  Understanding is the key to kindness. 
So get out there and do some good and, while you’re at it, don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. You deserve a little kindness too.

A real-life jungle book story!

Tippi Degré grew up riding a five-ton elephant whom she called ‘my brother,’ chilling with cheetahs, and hugging a giant bullfrog like a Teddy bear.

The child of French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi spent her incredible childhood in Africa with her best friends: wild lion cubs, a mongoose, a snake, a cheetah, baby zebra, giraffes, and crocodiles.

Approach the world with an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out.
