I create artwork I hope can help save the world. I teach to empower my students and enlighten myself. I design to give people access to what they need to change their lives for the better.
I try to change the world every day, at least a little bit. I try to use any talent or time or advantage I have to make life better for as many people as I can. The reason I do this is actually pretty simple: others did it for me, and I am very grateful.
As an artist, this means making pieces wherein my viewer becomes a collaborator. I want to always welcome my audience into the mix of creation.
As an interaction art director, I work on educational tools for students of art and design. I use my 15+ years of experience in educational publishing and advertising design to this end.
