Methodology

My teaching methodology is very practical and engaging. It starts with assessing the specific needs of students. I then normally work on real projects and incourage students to ask questions and make progress relevant to the goal initially established.

I also make sure to offer as many tips and advise as possible related to my own professional experience that might benefit students in accessing their chosen industry sector.

I am and artist, illustrator and designer currently working for the retail and editorial sectors with a background in fashion media as a stylist and art director at mainstream consumer magazines.
