What do you enjoy about teaching/your job?

I enjoy seeing student work coming to fruition, and the thought that I have been part of the process that helped my students produce the best work they can!

What do you love about your area?

I love how photography can be used to depict what I find curious; the genre I like is documentary and producing photobooks out of my projects has been a lot of fun, as it involves collaborating with designers and writers.
