Experience at SAIC
SAIC is a eclectic community which makes you feel welcome and inspires creativity.
My teaching philosophy is that of group pedagogy. I believe that students learn best when they surround themselves with precedents, and share each other's work. As a professor, my role is to guide and moderate the conversation. I encourage students to take the path of self discovery, regardless of the subject matter. I encourage everyone to explore less mainstream solutions.
I am very interested in projects that have a social cause. Whether it is to remind the community of a past events, or to propagate current ones.
