Teaching/Lecture/Curatorial

Teaching Philosophy: As an Interdisciplinary Artist and Theorist, the process of teaching revolves around asking big questions, deconstruction, and reconstruction; finding solutions through the process of interdisciplinary research, expansion through peer learning and individually motivated and universally applied inquiry. My classes support creative knowledge production and free-thinking by promoting the amalgamation of empirical knowledge, data and emotional intelligence to find solutions.
