Over the course of my 35 plus years in design, I witnessed the evolution of visual communications into the digital environments we have today. During that time one thing has remained the same, whether you use pixels or India ink to create a visual message, the best solutions are still concept driven with a clear understanding of your audience/user.

After an award-winning career in advertising design, I made the transition into academics. I am an assistant professor of graphic design at Auburn University where I teach courses in interactive and graphic design. See samples of my students' work

My research interest is in how graphic design intersects with those who are considered vulnerable or underserved populations. Learn more about my research
