“Having taught seven different classes during my time at FIDM, it is very hard to pick just one favorite project. However, it is easy to tell you what makes a project an amazing experience. For me, it is the process of giving the student a project at the beginning of a quarter and seeing the blank look in their eyes and their insecurity about being able to take it on and then watch them progress over the next 10 weeks to the point of creating something that is strong, creative, impressive and a finished project they are incredibly proud of. Being a very hands-on program, I see this over and over. It's exhilarating to work with students who blossom when challenged, and who take the time to push themselves to do better, to fix and learn, to rewrite, redesign, replan, and reposition what started pretty rough around the edges into something that shines bright. That's when I know I get the greatest satisfaction.”
