Student Support:

  • Student advising – Act as an informal student advisor, especially regarding technology needs, interactivity, and and industry demand. I work with students in my own courses as well as those from other programs looking for additional help in circuitry, coding, audio/video manipulation, and general critique. This has greatly expanded the use of technology in artwork being created on campus as a whole. (Ongoing)
