My teaching interests are centered on establishing an atmosphere of curiosity in the classroom.  It is curiosity that engages exploration, formulates questions, and encourages idea realization.  Curiosity is not safe – oftentimes it is the prerequisite for the greatest success or the most disastrous failure. In my classroom students of various backgrounds oscillate between their trained fields and their collaborative efforts in entering new territory.  These crossovers that happen between the arts, sciences, and the humanities create an air of invention and the interactions that result are invaluable.  It is my desire to foster an interdisciplinary approach – this was my training as an artist and I find it useful for engaging in constructive discourse. 

In addition to teaching in IAS and CUSP at UW Bothell, I am a visiting lecturer in the Art Department at UW Seattle where I teach occasional undergraduate courses.
