I am thrilled to have been teaching at IUPUI since the fall 2001 semester. I hold both a BA and MA in Interior Design from Purdue University, a Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management from IUPUI, and an MS in Public Safety at IUPUI. My professional design experience includes extensive commercial design and project management of office, educational and healthcare facilities. My special areas of interest, however, includes life safety in commercial structures, as well as building codes, and building safety and security. I successfully passed the NCIDQ in 2001.
