Fine Art Teaching

With my MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the former NOMAD MFA program at University of Hartford (now the Confluence MFA program at UNM), and my previous BFA in Multimedia and Performing Arts from the Studio for Interrelated Media (Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston), I am poised to expand on my art teaching portfolio and am interested in teaching foundation studio art, technology, and interdisciplinary courses. The degree programs I attended were intensively both critique and community-based. 

As of Fall 2023, I became an adjunct for the College of Art and Design at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) teaching required BFA and MFA courses.

My references include Mary Mattingly, Christy Gast, Billie Lee, and Nita Sturiale.

Architectural Teaching

Prior to my studies in art, I studied architecture at Carnegie-Mellon University and worked for architectural firms in various parts of the Northeast US, including the award-wining Payette in Boston. I went on to teach many first-year architecture studios and program electives as regular part-time faculty from 2016 to 2021 at University of Hartford for the Department of Architecture until I relocated with my family to Rochester, NY.

Most recently I have been teaching for the RIT Online M.Arch program as adjunct faculty.

Lab Administration

I had been hired to manage and overhaul the Architecture Woodshop and Digital Fabrication Lab at the University of Hartford to meet accreditation standards. I created a scheduling system and regularly consulted students with fabrication planning. I lead a team with an assistant that had both undergraduate and graduate students.
