In my design and art, I work in both imagined and real space. I ask the viewer to consider the place where we truly are; to engage the viewer in conversation so we may deepen our understanding of what it means to be human. As a teacher of design, I shift this philosophy to studio where I hope to impart a very important message: that decisions made during the design process have great impact on the lives of the people we design for.

The conversation is characteristically organic and circular in nature – meaning, if one asks a question one most likely has a sense of the answer. What's important here is not the answer itself but the continual quest of what the answer can become.
