Academia
As a multi-disciplinary fine artist, professional designer, curator, and educator, I've worked in diverse fields, navigating the spaces between fine art practice and design, often searching for where the two worlds intersect.


I've been faculty at Rhode Island School of Design since 1998, where I split my duties between three different departments: Digital Media, Illustration, and Graphic Design.

In addition to teaching my regular courses, I've also led several interdisciplinary and sponsored studios. In 2010 I developed the content and co-taught an ESPN sponsored studio on “Fandom.” In 2011 I was a guest presenter at the James S. McDonnell Foundation Workshop on Artists Envision Science & Technology, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. In 2012 I developed and co-taught “Bay In Flux” a course for the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). During the summer of 2014, I participated as a lead researcher in the Science and Technology Advisory Council (STAC) and The Nature Lab hosted Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) program. Then for RISD's Spring of 2015 semester, I developed and taught an EPScOR funded interdisciplinary course called “Data Narratives.”
