I love seeing students succeed in their designs, writings, productions, and careers!

I'm currently a full-time university professor of graphic design and digital journalism. I've taught classes on design, photography, and writing for the past eight years. My university students have become full-time, award-winning photographers, web designers, creative specialists, reporters, and layout designers. 

And now, you can learn from me as well!

Get started by enrolling in my courses and learning new skills. I've worked as internet development director at an award-winning advertising design firm, as managing editor at two graphic design magazines, as webmaster at a regional newspaper, and have been a freelance graphic designer and writer for the past 20 years. I have a B.A. in Communication, an M.A. in Journalism and Media Studies, and a Ph.D. in Communication.

My combination of professional real world experience, formal education, and experience in teaching have all enabled me to produce quality courses that help students become better at digital media and communication.
