I teach interaction design, game design, and art. My passion for design, education and working with diverse groups stems from my social change and theater background. My ability to humanize technology and explain complex concepts in plain language is an invaluable skill when pursuing any form of technical design education. In San Francisco I have taught design at USF in the Department of Art + Architecture, Creative Code with Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, and game design at BAVC. In New York I taught at creative code at Parsons, web and graphic design at St. Joseph’s College.
