I am committed to a model of education where students learn by doing. I engage students with a multi-layered approach to project based work where practical knowledge and theory, personal development, and skill acquisition all come together to augment the practice of visual language and non-discursive problem solving.

It's important that students feel and understand the nature of the themes and questions being explored in their project work and connect this to their own sense of self and the world(s) they create and occupy. Some projects place emphasis on technique, some on ideas, some on process, some on form, and it's always a pleasure to see where students take them.

Today, more than ever, we are challenged with an onslaught of critical issues. I find it important to foster an environment that cultivates designers who embrace the changes and challenges of the future with service, collaboration, and a commitment to life long learning.


I work primarily with networked technologies, exploring the interface between visual and written language, code, data, and culture. My research is socially aware, engaged, humble, boundless, principled, and active. I’ve always had an interest in and am equally wary of and enthralled with the dialectic of how humans create and are created by technology.

Current projects include application design and development for health & wellness self efficacy research, exploring computer vision to mine, translate and visualize untranslated poetry, and service design that explores climate change influenced transitions in the upper Amazon/Ucayali region of Peru.
