Experience at SAIC

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago has offered me teaching opportunities that would simply not be possible anywhere else. Moreover, it's the students who make it uniquely rewarding. THEY make it possible to have teaching experiences not to be found anywhere else just by their very nature and comportment.

Personal Statement

Stay curious. Keep moving. Keep going!

Current Interests

I enjoy exploring the theoretical underpinnings of crafts with physical outcomes. Making news produces a physical property whether it's the written word or digital video. These properties drive ideas. Ideas move thoughts. Thoughts move people.
