Teaching Experience

2016 – Current | Assistant Professor – Digital Design and Fabrication – State University of New York at New Paltz

Responsible for management, curriculum development and instruction in the Digital Design and Fabrication Minor started in the Fall of 2016, focused on the cross disciplinary integration of the expertise contained within the School of Fine and Performing Arts and the School of Science and Engineering.

Computer-aided design classes are augmented with specialized courses covering computer programming and the use of open-source microprocessor boards, providing students with an understanding of the application and the technological aspects of emerging processes and materials. The minor culminates with a design course focused on the application of human-centered design for the manufacture of functional products that address real-world problems.    

2014 | Instructor – Special Topics in Sculpture – Arduino Microcontrollers – University of Arkansas

Special topics course teaches artists on how to integrate microcontrollers and sensors to collect data and create interactive and responsive projects.  Topics covered include, Coding for Arduino and Processing, circuit building with passives, motor control, reading input from environmental sensors and translating data to an aesthetic output.

2013 | Instructor – Movement, Mechanisms, and Microcontrollers – Penland School of the Crafts

Intensive multi week workshop instructs artists on using microcontrollers along with mechatronics to create interactive kinetic projects.  Skills learned include simple turning and machining operations on the lathe, use of the TIG welder, Coding for the Arduino IDE, circuit building and bending, reading data from sensors, and motor control
