"Even though learning photography and digital media can at times involve rigorous attention to technical instruction, as a teacher I seek to offer a balance of technical and aesthetic training. At the same time, I provide theoretical framework and intellectual context for students' art-making practice. This fuels a student's interest in making meaningful work and encourages each student to evaluate the ethical and social impact their work may have on a larger audience.
"My own work is heavily invested in the idea that images can create knowledge. I explore in visual form the discrepancies between lived experience and the assertions and presumptions of culture."
