teaching


I started teaching in 2013 at several Universities in Guatemala.

In 2014 I focused on building the newly formed Product Design program at UFMdesign.
While there I gave this talk about the tragectory of product design.

In 2017 I moved to the University of Wisconsin - Madison as the first manager of the Grainger Engineering Design Innovation Lab (Makerspace). In addition to running the fabrication facility I've been the instcutor of several classes and involved in the realization of an new interdisciplinary design masters program (MDI) that opened in the summer 2020.

In the fall of 2021 I joined the full time faculty at the Maryland Institue College of Art (MICA) in Balimore as a Professor of Product Design.
