My architectural education was innovative, a multi-disciplinary curriculum fusing aesthetics, social and cultural concerns. I almost look at as a general education that integrates the arts, sciences, and the humanities through analytical thinking, creativity, craftsmanship, and social interaction. Since 2002 I have served as an educator at various universities and colleges. Currently I am faculty at California Sate University, Chico and in the past have held positions at the Art Institute of California, Otis School of Art and Design, University of California, Los Angeles, American Intercontinental University and New York School of Interior Design. As an academic I have always been interested in the extreme social and environmental conditions in which to debate the nature of art and design, the future of cities, and the changing role of architects, designers and artists.
