Visual communication design brings together essential human activities: relationships, personal expression, and the pursuit of meaning and beauty.

I find inspiration in studio classes, where curiosity, research, and experimentation are encouraged. I emphasize the balance of intuitive design and analytical critique as a significant characteristic of the design process. I am driven to help students understand commonalities in visual expression within a culture and throughout history, and to interpret them meaningfully for a specific goal.
