TAILORED TALKS

Have a conference, panel, program or local meet-up? I’d love to hear about it. Presentations are heavily researched and filled with real-world, practical applications. Current topics include a designer’s approach to: entrepreneurship, education, design thinking, ux of virtual reality and experiential learning for autism.

 

Teaching

As an educator, my goal is to nurture a culture of excitement, exploration and autonomy in the study and practice of Graphic Design. The more I teach, the more I learn.

 

UNIVERSITY

I am a full-time faculty at Jacksonville University overseeing the current Graphic Design program. Courses include Digital Art, Typography, Graphic Studio, Brand & Identity Design, User Experience and Interaction Design.
