In 2016, I made the big move to teaching. It was hard. And at first I sucked.
Though I got better, and in 2018 was nomiated for Educator of the Year by AdClub CO.
I've shared a bit of what I know in concepting, design, copywriting and putting a portfolio together with over 200 students. Always approaching it as if they were creative teams and I was their CD.
Below are some of them, and their words. Humbled.
I also helped bring back some of the glory of The Dairy Show, the students' end of year exhibition/awards.
In 2017, it returned to the Dairy Arts Center, for which it was orginally named.
I worked with the space and caterers, conceived and made the milk bottle awards, and ran the show.
And in 2017 and 2019, I helped organize trips to New York for our Young Ones winners, including visits to some great agencies.
