COURSES

Mission: To contribute to the quality of design in Trinidad and Tobago, one course, conversation, project or product at a time. I have combined my BFA in Graphic Design (2012) with 9+ years of work experience, as well as 3 years of teaching experience at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine to create each of these courses. Come with a dash of curiosity and an open mind!
