Designer & Educator

In September of 2006, I stepped foot in front of my first college class as a teaching assistant for an introductory design lecture. The piles of grading, endless questions via email, and that one student who I just couldn't get through to…I love every messy bit of it. 

University of Minnesota / Adjunct Faculty  (May 2009-Dec 2014)

I taught part-time as Adjunct Faculty since finishing my MFA in May 2009. My favorite classes there? Interactive Design studio, Graphic Symbol and Identity studio, and User Experience in Design.

--I took a brief sabbatical from teaching in order to gain more international and corporate experience. During that time, working as a Senior UX Design Researcher at Honeywell in Golden Valley, MN from Feb 2015-July 2016--
