- About SCAD
"With my interdisciplinary academic and professional experiences in architecture, history and preservation, my ultimate goal as an educator is to instill a passion of academic studies on those topics in my students as I share my own vision of historic preservation for learning with them. I believe that each student needs a stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature academically, intellectually and professionally, and it is my desire to help students meet their maximum level of potential by providing an interactive learning environment that invites a sharing of creative, professional, and futuristic preservation visions and perspectives on the contemporary built environments."
