- About SCAD
"My inspiration for teaching comes from our students and the projects that they undertake, particularly in their M.F.A. thesis work. They typically choose to tackle 'wicked problems,' applying the theory, principles and methods of design to address pressing social issues and problems in business, education, the economy and the public sector. The contributions have a positive impact on 'the greater good' and have repercussions far beyond their own reputations as design professionals."
"Using professional and educational background as a scholar practitioner to contribute to the growth and professional development of every student."
