Teaching Philosophy

Because of my professional background and related experiences, I understand that to be successful and competitive, one has to remain adaptable in their work environment. Adaptability is one of the core values that I teach in my classes, whether it is tackling technology challenges during class, encouraging creative solutions during 11th-hour struggles, or just in the way students approach initial problems. I encourage students to be flexible and adaptive to the constant flow of change inherent in the design profession including technology, design trends, and client interactions.

With adaptability and the practice of lifelong learning, I believe our students can take more of a lead in today’s workforce as designers and entrepreneurs and be confident in a new and uncertain future.
