|Teaching has always been important to me because it is a way to both give and gain. You give the students your experience, knowledge, and inspiration. In return, you receive their fresh and unspoiled ideas that they are trying to distill and formulate.
Preparing to talk to a group of students makes me summarize my best. Reviewing their work recharges me with inspiration and helps me keep up current with the times. It is exciting when your influence helps a student to define, crystallize, and execute their ideas.
Aside from miscellaneous conferences, talks, and lectures about the influence of architecture in production design, I have been involved as a visiting professor at Woodbury University and at Tulane University.
