I have retired from a long career as an information designer and teacher and am now focusing on my personal art.  


For 15 years I was a faculty instructor at Michigan State University where I taught both creativity and infographics. Prior to joining academia, I was the Director of Infographics at Newsweek magazine, The Associated Press, and several other news organizations. 

I'm a self-taught artist who went to work straight after high school. Ironically, as a teacher, I never had the fortitude or patience to attend school, so I tried to teach my classes the way I wish I had been taught, dynamically with lots of making stuff and figuring things out. 😊
