It’s been two years since I posted about my first-time jury duty jitters. Being a part of the panel isn’t really something I truly enjoy, except when I actually see a project being presented with such gusto. It’s like I have to play a part, depending on what the situation calls for, I can be […]Read more "Thoughts: Post-Thesis Delibs"

You know that idea taught in physics about action and reaction? My understanding of how learning works, especially getting better at design, is very much related to inertia. Observing from experience, I reflected on what makes a good design consultation? Why is it that some students have a hard time with AD consultations? Good consultations […]Read more "How to make your Design consultations better"
