Teaching

I am an Assistant Professor of Digital Arts at Stetson University in Deland, Florida. I currently teach courses in digital audio, audio recording and production, senior projects, scoring for multimedia, and advanced digital art studio.

My teaching philosophy emphasizes being flexible, conversational, and empathetic through the use of active learning techniques.
