I am a Visual Designer, UI/UX Designer, Creative Director, and Educator
I emphasize the need for students to understand their roles as designers in a digital world and the importance of good UI/UX design.
I have been a practicing visual designer for over fifteen years and an educator for over nine years. I have three priorities in the classroom environment: provide interdisciplinary insight, provoke critical analysis, and maintain the ability to adapt to and innovate with ever-changing technology and the ever-evolving user.
