"As an educator, there is a sense of tradition and legacy for the discipline that is the impetus for personal studio work, sharing of knowledge and a striving for excellence in all aspects of teaching and preparing students to meet their personal goals. An insatiable curiosity drives a commitment to lifelong learning and problem-solving. Finally, the satisfaction in seeing students become proficient and successful designers and studio artists whose thinking has been profoundly influenced by the work undertaken in their program of study."
