Research Interests
embodied cognition and creativity

I'm interested in how direct, mindful, kinesthetic experience activates creativity and innovation. As a teacher, I play with intentionality and ways to approach cognition, expression, and communication through embodied experience. This approach is a way to affirm the human spirit – individually and collectively, to address the warring polarities of life and art, mind and body, one person and the next person.
