I am a designer and educator living in Newark, Delaware, USA.
I teach at the University of Delaware as Associate Professor of Graphic and Interaction Design, perform workshops in creative process, typography, robotics and physical computing, service a wide array of select clients and am invited to speak to audiences world-wide. My creative research interrogates relationships between language, technology, materials and people. My studio, Design is good for you, operates as a collaboration between creative constituents around the world.

New and Interesting:
May 2016: I will be part of the upcoming exhibition “Assimilation”, curated by Frankie Flood and Nicole Jacquard, Kenilworth Square East Gallery at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. From the press release, “The exhibition, in conjunction with the 2016 Zoom Milwaukee Symposium, will focus on the idea of digital craft and showcase artwork and designed objects that demonstrate an integrated use of digital technique with that of traditional craft process.”
Ongoing: Tricia Treacy and I have been awarded a Project Grant from the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design to support our examination, documentation and workshopping of contemporary, post-digital creative practice, with a specific focus on understanding the relationship between handmade production and digital technologies.
