- About SCAD
You could say teaching is in my blood. Both my parents, my sister, my aunt, my cousin and my grandparents have all been educators. But, despite all that influence, I wanted to chart my own course. I wanted to design! After years in practice, however, something was missing. I love design, but somehow there was an ingredient that was left out of the mix. A friend invited me to critique his college studio class one day and that missing spark revealed itself. Interacting with the students engaged me in a way nothing else ever had. From then on I took every opportunity to get in a classroom. What I discovered was that I needed both design and teaching to feel complete. I need to be passionate about what I do to teach well. Nothing inspires me like teaching, and nothing engages my passion more than design. Together they form a perfect fit, a blend of passion and inspiration I hope I can pass along to my students.
