First year at SCAD:

"Embarking with my students on a learning and exploration adventure is my main drive for teaching. I enjoy being a part of an environment where my formal education in architecture-related fields can find direct application in preparing students to be instrumental in preserving and designing the buildings and cities of tomorrow. I believe a solid academic base can only be laid through a continuous, focused exposure to the theory and philosophy of design, expected in high standard academic education. Formal education instills in students the knowledge and confidence to succeed in their future professions."
