First year at SCAD:

"Ralph Nader's father once asked him, 'Ralph, what did you learn in school today? Did you learn how to believe or did you learn how to think?' This question asked to a young Nader is a basic principle to a strong foundation of teaching. It asks the student to understand and question for themselves, to be more than just a passive listener.

"Throughout my academic life, I have been privileged enough to be taught and influenced by some of the most profound and insightful artists and professors. My teaching can only be modeled after the many opportunities, experiences and realizations that have been shared with me."
