EXPERIENCE

 

I aspire to engage students in artistic practices by designing courses and programming that address theoretical topics through real-world applications. Grounded in contemporary topics and research within the arts and other fields, my curricula provide essential skills and experiences for developing artist educators. Through my continuing professional growth, I hope to inspire students that will create and develop programs that explore and help define what 21st century arts education will become.
