I am an educator, consultant, and occasional digital artist living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
An associate professor in technical communication at New Mexico Tech, I teach various classes connected with visual communication, where I guide students to become comfortable with being creative, and to develop their own designs around simple guidelines. I am quick to see a need and to develop innovative projects to meet that need. My current projects are a creativity hub and an interactive multimedia ePublication. View CV.
I am a visual communication consultant at plain visuals, LLC. I train instructors from industry and education in clear visual communication so they fully engage learners, facilitate effective learning, and model the best visual communication practices for their students and trainees. I also strategize simple, clear visual solutions for instructional materials, presentations and slideshows.
I like to create illustrations with basic shapes and colors. I find inspiration in dreams, myths, literature, and everyday shapes, sights, and sounds. I enjoy giving form to ideas and mental images, and watching them morph on the sleek screen of my laptop.
I am passionate about all things new and the natural world. People fascinate me. I love to laugh and Mediterranean food.
