Assistant Professor of Art
What do you do at Fox?
I teach the following classes: ARTD 210 Introduction to Creative Suite, ARTD 360 Illustration, ARTD 363 History of Visual Communications, ARTD 410 Advanced Creative Suite, ARTD 450 Maya, and ARTD 451 Motion Graphics and Special Effects. I have also taught ARTD 250 Introduction to Graphic Design, CMCO 360 2-D Animation, and CMCO 460 3-D Animation.
When did you start working at Fox?
Fall of 2006
BS in Fine & Applied Arts, University of Oregon; art director in Chicago from 1974 to 1979; freelance in Portland from 1979 to present.
What is something you’d like to do in the future?
I’d like to bicycle across Europe, maybe starting somewhere in the Alps and riding downhill rather than starting in the Netherlands and ending up near the Matterhorn.
What is something you’re grateful for, appreciate, encouraged by, or excited about?
I absolutely love teaching at Fox! There is a great amount of synergy in the classrooms and labs.
I married my college sweetheart in 1973. We have four adult children (two of whom were adopted from Guatemala) and two foster children. We live in Portland.
What kind of art do you do?
Technical illustration (both traditional and digital), graphite fine art, graphic design, animation, and calligraphy.
