Teaching

I find it a great honor to teach, to share knowledge and be inspired by students. I began teaching at the University of Oregon, as an Assistant Professor (Adjunct), in 2006, when I taught the two-term, Introduction to Architectural Design studio sequence. I have continued teaching at the UO part time for the past few years.

Here is an image of my students from Winter/Spring 2006, grouped around their site model, and holding ceramic tiles each of them made for their project:
