BFA, U Mass Dartmouth
Teaching graphic design at RISD and NEU keeps me aware of current digital technologies as well as the changing attitudes, fashion, and maturity of the next-wave demographic.
I find this exposure essential as a design professional, but it is the personal joy (and frustration) of teaching that is most fulfilling.
Watching my students develop their talents and turn into confident, skilled design professionals by utilizing the same design principals I have practiced for over 25 years is pretty darn cool.
When not designing or teaching, I travel as often and as far as I can, camera in one hand, fork in the other.
