I am an adjunct instructor of graphic design at Portland State University.

Within both my studio and seminar courses, I place emphasis on process, research and encouraging students to become acute observers of their environments and contexts. I facilitate experiential learning whenever possible (Field trips!) and strive to empower students to become self-motivated directors of their own creative inquiry. If they're into what they're doing, they'll do it better.

Below are the classes I teach and their corresponding course blogs.
