college & university
Currently I teach Curatorial theory in the graduate program at Western Colorado University.
From 205-19 I was a studio professor in the BFA program at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, a College of the University of New Haven. I was the first Practitioner-in-Residence, and inaugurated the first arts study abroad program in Prato, Italy, in 2017. I worked on courses at all levels, including senior thesis as lead instructor and on the team from 2007 - 2019. In those years I curated or assisted in the curation and installation of the senior thesis exhibition, and designed the senior exhibition catalog. I served as Interim Chair of Foundation 2009-2010, and was co-chair of the committee to redesign the foundations program. The school offered a foundation based in observation and figuration, using materiality and method as a language and basis for conceptual ideas. The college closed in summer 2019.
