University Design Lecturer: Industrial Designer
Since 2007, I have been employed as a full-time lecturer at Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Art and Technology (SIAT), where I have taught exclusively in the design concentration. My course repertoire has included teaching both lecture and practice-based studios in the subjects of industrial design, graphic design, drawing, and spatial thinking, as well as a senior capstone course.
Since that time, my duties as lecturer have included teaching a variety of upper and lower division courses (100, 200, 300 and
400). My course specialities include industrial design, drawing, graphic design and spatial thinking.
In addition to my teaching duties, I serve on the university’s Infrastructure Committee and was the primary faculty member responsible for SolidSpace, the school's physical prototyping space.
Outside of committee and teaching duties, I actively engage in events to promote the department and explore my interest in 3D printing (additive manufacturing) , including the schools' annual Open House, Maker Faire and various other exhibitions.
