Life Insurance : Adjunct Professor

I designed a class called "Life Insurance". When so much of school is about visual problem solving I wanted to pass on skills and opportunities related to living and working in New York. Specifically I wanted to connect students with founders of NYC creative companies, secondly I wanted to invite the students to work together on a class project to rebrand a NYC based business. 

So far I have only had time to teach 2 semesters of the course.  


Semester 1 - 21thru24
The team branded and relaunched a restaurant on the lower east side.
