I am an educator, designer, artist, and experienced leader for academic and arts organizations. I live and work in Beijing, China. Visual communication and global education are my passions. I love to teach and advise students, encouraging them to discover their own strengths and interests, becoming engaged participants in visual culture. I am a skilled planner and manager, taking a leadership role in developing and directing organizations. I thrive in a collaborative environment, working with people to create projects and build programs.  Use the links in the menu to see my work. Contact me with questions or comments.
