As a teacher in both the design studio and the History/Theory stream, he seeks to make positive connections linking professional practice to the academic setting. Areas of scholarly interest and professional development include vernacular architecture, pre-engineered structures / mobile homes, and the continued development of design practice focusing on residential architecture. He has written articles in Art Papers and Designer/Builder magazine featuring his ongoing interest in the vernacular landscape.
In Fall 2011, the School of Architecture faculty designed posters to represent their research, designs, accomplishments and interests, for use in the NAAB accreditation process.
