• Research

    My current research interests include accessibility and service design, particularly the examination of individuals who are visually impaired and their interaction with brands, products and environments to improve equity and quality of life. In 2012-2013, I was the principal investigator for a pilot study on branding for blind and low vision audiences. The results were showcased in a three-day exhibition at Ryerson University. I continue to work with researchers and professionals who are passionate about accessible design for the visually impaired.

  • Student Work

    I consider myself fortunate to work with highly creative and talented students. Some featured work on this site includes typographic and graphic design compositions, information and package design projects. When developing and executing creative projects in the classroom, I try and facilitate an iterative process whereby students have the opportunity to generate, expand, test and refine their work. Critiques are a significant part of my teaching strategy to provide an applied and professional learning experience alongside other active learning techniques.
