My teaching formally began in November 2000 with my first guest lectures. I have always wanted to teach, and now with my professional experience in Information Architecture, I am able to share that knowledge in the classroom. I am teaching a professional development survey course in IA through UCSC Extension and a semester-long course through Cabrillo College. I have completed my Masters degree from the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State.
