My teaching Philosophy

I equip students to envision and reimagine the public discourse toward which they will contribute. Blending the strategies of seminars, lectures, and studio courses, I strive to prepare my students with the historical grounding, technological insight, critical vocabulary, and artistic resilience they need to ask the tough questions that will shape the future. I see my students as citizens of the world (regardless of national origin or documentation), and my classrooms as sites to build communities of inquiry and propel courageous acts.
