MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) is consistently ranked as one of the top art schools in the country, in the company of Yale School of Art and RISD. I taught as adjunct faculty in their design department for over two years.

Information Design
I was invited by Ellen Lupton to teach an information design seminar/studio for MFA graduate students. My curriculum was based on Edward Tufte’s principles of information design. Student work done for this course was purchased by NPR Music to illustrate A Visual History of Loudness.
