The first thing I do before the first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy, technical, and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period through the questionnaire. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together. I incorporate technology all the time. I'm also inclusive driven because I believe everyone can learn no matter their capabilities or background, I also engage with my students by catering to their interests, and I embrace my dualities and share them with my students.

I have taught art for over 20 years at a variety of colleges and universities—including Yale School of Art, University of California, Claremont Colleges and Otis College of Art. I am also a practicing artist with an international exhibition record. I received my MFA from Yale and specialize in conceptual art—grounding my multimedia work in painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and film in a theoretical rigor. My work and writing have appeared in a number of essays, articles and books. I approach art as a meaningful activity in the world that spans a variety of cultural histories and traditions. My teaching approach is direct, but persistent: I seek to find the motivating drives in the student, to assist in developing those drives through education in historical and contemporary art theory, and to help channel that knowledge into personally-resonant theoretical production.

I like to go beyond the typical art history and theory classes and look at the many diverse factors that influence art and artists. In the art theory classes I took in school, I noticed a typically singular view presented by professors. I encourage my students to look beyond the scope and engage in exercising their own critical muscles when assessing art and the art world. In my classes, we will look at art history and theory, but we will also investigate culture, politics, etc. I will provide planned lessons while leaving space for students to do their own research and prepare their owns assessments. By the end of the class, students will feel confident in discussing and critiquing artwork.
