About Me

As an Associate Professor in the Communication Arts Department at Framingham State University, I teach classes in visual communications, graphic and web design. I am currently researching how gamification and game-based learning can increase student engagement.

My methodology involves filling the classroom with energy and excitement and encouraging students to listen, experiment, explore and participate.

I am particularly interested in exploring concepts of beauty and graphic expression through traditional and non-traditional media. My work, The Impermanence of Art and Beauty, has been published in the Athens Journal of Humanities and Arts.

I believe strongly in maintaining a healthy work/life balance. My inspiration comes from a daily practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation, exploring nature and the interconnectedness of all things, and immersing myself in the study of art and music. Reading constantly fuels my desire to learn more.
