My own learning challenges led me to find refuge in graphic design a visual communication processing language connecting pictures and words into one simultaneous language. For over two decades, have built bridges between graphic design and teaching and learning, creating applications to support access, engagement and comprehension in diverse fields such as documentation as assessment inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, Bauhaus and Black Mountain College pedagogy, Froebel’s gifts and occupations and Universal Design for Learning.

To read more about my work with teachers follow my blog or read my chapter titled Using Strategies from Graphic Design to Improve Teaching and Learning in Essentials of Using and Integrating Visual and Media Literacy: Visualizing Learning, Springer Publications, edited by D. M. Baylen and Adriana Alba.

I teach at the college and university level and offer individual, content team and all-school coaching.
