I teach drawing and presentation techniques as part of the freshman summer experience each year. I teach fourth year studios, both fall and spring, as well as the professional practice class every semester. I am also a graduate faculty member where I advise graduate students and teach the design management class.

Interest areas in research and practice:
My area of expertise is in entrepreneurship and the business of design. Most semesters my studio is involved with projects from outside industry sponsors. My research extends into the area of entrepreneurship and my cartographic illustration techniques that I have developed for the past two decades.
