Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

My experience in the field of graphic design gives me the opportunity to relate to my students with real world perspective and application of the fundamentals that they will be learning. My teaching posture is relaxed, but focuses on a dedication to craft. Students in my courses come away with a solid understanding of design. Hierarchy, visual unity, balance, space, color, and typographic clarity are all concepts that a student will utilize in the professional world.

Research Interests

I am a collector of the past, an alchemist and artisan of contemporary craft. In my work, I meticulously cut, fold, sew and adhere many small parts and recontextualize my collected content to create new narratives. The intent of my art is to encourage viewers to look at the work with a sense of curiosity and wonderment. This current body of work is a direct result of my residencies and travels to Calabria, Basilicata, and Puglia, Italy and my research of Byzantine architecture, design, and religious reliquaries.
