Fun Facts: I recently discovered the excellence that is geocaching. Also I like to hike, travel, eat pizza, dissect old objects like telephones and explore objects in thrift stores.
My approach to teaching centers on establishing an environment committed to curiosity. By engaging students in discussions, projects, demonstrations and critiques, we explore and deepen our relationship to the creative process. Throughout each semester, my students learn how to ask interesting questions and, through research and experimentation, find compelling approaches to answering those questions.
