I base my classes on assisting the students in the manipulation of technology. This is centered on the development of concept driven digital imaging. I tailor my teaching environment to host the student’s individualized approach to project creation. I have a history of renovating, dumpster diving, networking, and upkeep in regards to creating a space to encourage the potential of my students.

My assignments connect back to social issues and can take the form of multiple digital mediums. These social dimensions include topics on ethnicity, class, race, gender, and more. I also enjoy guiding the class through the physiological and psychological concerns of visual design, communication theory, art history, and ethics in art.
