what you can't do, teach
MY ABILITY TO RELATE TO AUDIENCES on various topics such as design, design management and Web design comes directly from my experience as a design professional. The ideas and tactics that I speak about are first-hand accounts of my search for workable solutions. My goal as a speaker is to give the audience the tools they need to deconstruct any problem so they can create a workable methodology of their own.
“It is not just your knowledge of the subject that makes you special, but it is your uncanny ability to interact and converse with students of all ages in order to get your message heard.”
– SASD Student
I am an experienced college-level professor with the ability to inspire and motivate students at any level. I have excellent curriculum development and planning skills and experience with assignment writing and lecturing for design and business classes.
