"Introducing concepts and engaging our students in introspective dialogue that examines contemporary themes within the framework of modern design is my greatest joy in teaching. The subject matter often presents opportunities for students to offer insight and pose challenging questions through which they may gain a discerning outlook. More importantly, maintaining a professional yet jovial rapport with my students speaks volumes to the necessity of sharing ideas in an academic setting."
