Teaching Emphasis

I’m passionate about the intersection of technology and design. My courses examine user experience research and user interface design, digital product ideation, project management, social media and web analytics, and social and cultural dynamics of emerging media. I teach practical skills (the how) and theoretical knowledge (the why).
