just a few things that I think you may want to know
I am currently a professor of Interactive Design at Quinnipiac University and I teach courses on Design Thinking, UI/UX, mobile, web, motion graphics, and professional portfolio development. I have a BFA and an MFA in Visual Art, but I knew I was an artist from a very early age. I am a life-long learner and have been studying and practicing: visual thinking, embodiment, leadership, facilitation, visual recording, and mindfulness practices.
My professional leadership training began in 1986 with David Allen of GTD fame. Of course, it wasn’t GTD back then, but the principles were similar and David Allen was a dynamic and charismatic teacher. I was hooked. I began voraciously reading, studying, practicing, and teaching time and life management.
Since then, I have attended and participated in dozens of trainings, including ones on: visual recording and facilitation; dealing with difficult people; transforming relationships with compassionate communication; facilitating transformational workshops; meditation & mindfulness; and somatic leadership practices. I am a certified $mart $tart Salary Negotiation Trainer, and a certified Laughter Wellness Leader through the American School of Laughter Yoga.
My art, presentations, and performances have been exhibited internationally. I was a Fulbright Scholar in Oslo, Norway and I have won many grants and awards for my art and design.
I bring my varied and creative background to all opportunities that arise. I’m certain that I can contribute unique and innovative practices and solutions to you and your company or organization.
