As an educator, I believe in providing design students with broad historical and theoretical backgrounds, in addition to the practical graphic design skills realized through a multitude of techniques and media. My aim is to help students gain comprehensive design training that will enable them to reach high quality of craftsmanship and artistic expression while communicating ideas with social and environmental awareness. My classes provide incentives for students to take ownership of their creative skills, become effective visual communicators, and demonstrate innovative, responsible, and intelligent interactions with the world.
