I view design as a way of transforming current situations into preferred ones. My work focuses on the principles of human-centered design, which puts people at the heart of decision making.
I am an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. I really enjoy teaching courses related to branding, methodologies, interaction design, motion graphics, and portfolio.
I’m currently researching design-related community partnerships. The topic of my doctoral dissertation is service-learning in design education. My master’s thesis is about empathy in design thinking.
