Service and Professional Development
I really love what I do and strive to do as much service and professional development that I can do. I participate in several groups at RIT and spend time each year going to conferences so that I can keep up to date with the trends of the industry.
For my research, I develop creative works to enter into competitions and festivals. I also spend time researching emerging technology and software, and teaching pedagogy. Then I present my findings at conferences and symposiums.
