PARTNERSHIPS//

I love creating opportunities and partnerships for designers. To me, facilitating workshops and experiences for students is hand in hand with teaching. As Assistant Professor, and as the Vice President of Education for AIGA KC, I believe in providing an "out of the classroom" space to learn. Below are some photos capturing these moments.
