TEACHING

It was an election year: the perfect opportunity for demonstrating the value of the vote, the mechanics of media and propaganda, and the responsibility of the Fourth Estate.  A routine, short-term, volunteer commitment at a local public middle school became a 9-month engagement, creating and implementing curriculum for a 7th grade Journalism class. The success of the project resulted in a regular digital design class which met 4 days a week for the next two years, co-sponsored by the Stonestown YMCA, as part of their after-school program. Students received instruction in design and video production, practical advice on responsible use of social media, and invitations to screen their completed works in district festivals. Word got around and a similar class was set up for K-5 kids which ran for a few years through the non-profit organization which supported a local elementary school. Future screenwriters, designers, cinematographers, directors, animators, actors, and social pundits participated in collaborative projects and also worked independently, learning how to take an idea and transform it into a coherent finished piece.

RECOGNITION: AIGA LOCAL HERO

In the first few years of striking out on my own and establishing a design and manufacturing studio, my universe was ever-expanding, yet my immediate world felt small, consumed as I was by a new, growing business. A memorable event from those early days was an invitation to speak to a community of colleagues and fans about my process; confirmation that I was doing something truly right! I still hold with these same basic principles and beliefs and have had many more experiences since then, which have helped me refine my approach, sharpen my skills, learn from my mistakes, and savor my accomplishments.
