- About SCAD
Exploring, learning and being creative are my passions. It is exciting to see students investigating new ways of gaining information and synthesizing knowledge. Learning to think and apply information in a whole new way is powerful, giving us the opportunity to change the world. In interior design, this means the ability to impact the experience others have in everyday settings and special places alike. The physical environment can be either a benefit or a detriment to positive experiences. The smallest details can make a huge difference in how we experience the world. Teaching students the nuances of environmental design and placemaking enhances their skills and design competence, but also creates a better world for all, one setting at a time.
