In Their Own Words

"I believe it is essential to give students access and time with emerging technology in a supportive and constructive environment. Guided experimentation is vital to mastering the use of current technology as well as helping students find a process of engaging and self-instructing as they go forward in their careers."

"The technology we use is ever-changing, and encouraging exploration and inspiring confidence prepares students to continually meet new iterations throughout their lives."

"Personally, I enjoy teaching because it makes me a better artist and person overall, and I thrive on the energy of my students and their drive to learn and make a difference in the world. As an undergraduate student, I had a professor who played an important role in my personal development. He helped me focus on my strengths and build confidence in my abilities as an artist. As a teacher, I strive to offer similar inspiration and encouragement to the students in my classes."
