Research has been focused on reportage drawing, the graphic novel and drawing for ideation. My own reportage work has been the focus of several conference papers along with my own practice-based insights on creating a full-length graphic novel. Current research extends reportage drawing into the realms of psychogeography and a larger meditation on modernity and the changing psychic landscape of cities. I am also collaborating with a colleague on a short comic which will be submitted as an academic paper. This comic looks at the representation of history, metaphor and the persistent and changeable narrative of history.
I have 10 years of teaching experience in higher education in the Art and Design and Education field. I have taught in US institutions such as Parsons New School of Design, SUNY Purchase, College of New Rochelle, and Westchester Community College. I am a practicing illustrator, animator and printmaker with a diverse portfolio of published work, selected films, and group and solo exhibitions. A collection of my illustrated work was published as a book in 2008 and I have an upcoming graphic novel to be published in the spring of 2016. My research has focused on the flexible application of drawing in art and design and how reportage drawing has evolved and sparks highly personal dialogues with people and places. I am pursuing an MPhil/PhD at the Royal College of Art.
I also have a personal website showcasing my design work.
