Teaching Philosophy

In my teaching, I focus on the individual student’s discovery of the medium through experiential learning. I place importance on a variety of technical and formal aspects within the given discipline and materials.  It is important for students to experience the material and understand how it reacts with their input and how their actions, or lack of action, will affect the world around them.
