I’m currently an Adjunct Professor in the Colleges of Art and Design at the School of Art and Design at Rochester Institute of Technology, teaching several design, and multi-disciplinary courses. I have also in the past been been involved in research at RIT’s College of Health Sciences and Technology’s multidisciplinary team entitled Medical Interactive Therapy Research. The focus of this research was on substance abuse, domestic violence, and using medical graphics, and students from different backgrounds to promote overall health and awareness of these issues.

I was the Grand Knight at RIT’s Knights of Columbus Council 14336 for the past six years (2016-2021), in addition it’s web and graphic designer for that council. My home council in Lebanon, NH Council 2656; in the past I helped with maintaining the website, and providing custom illustrations/designs.
