As an Associate Professor in the LSUS Digital Arts Program, I teach a number of design courses to include website design/development, interactive and game design, and creative problem solving/design thinking.

I also serve on the AAF’s National Education Executive Committee, the Adobe Education Leader advisory board, and I am an active member of IDEO’s Community of Practice.
In my career, I have received national recognition and several national awards, as well as multiple ADDY advertising awards, for my designs. I also hold multiple industry-level Adobe certifications and I am a past recipient of AAF District 10’s Outstanding Educator of the Year award.
