I can best describe my interests and achievements as eclectic and interdisciplinary. As an artist and science educator, I have deliberately crafted a personal pathway derived from my background in design and science. I strive to create a classroom equipped with physical models and critical response. I want students to view life forms as design elements, to automatically visualize concepts of biological concern so that they gain an aesthetic and scientific appreciation for the micro and macro world. With this approach, I believe students develop creative and insightful capabilities.
