Teaching philosophy: Being in the design business for years, I bring insight to design philosophies and real world experience to the classroom. It’s important to strike a balance between teaching design thinking and preparing students to bring that expertise into the business world. I want to open up the student’s awareness to see that design is all around us—to become a more observant creative thinker from the moment we wake up every day. As designers, we have a lot to contribute to the community. Believe that you can make a difference.
