Writing is an important aspect of the reflexive praxis of my working life. All of my projects have incorporated practice-based research within the process in some way or another, and I have explored the practice-based research through a written theoretical capacity in some of them. This has been critical in explicating the contextual and conceptual underpinnings of my work. This body of words consists of project reports, dissertations, and blogs. It is a step removed from working in a specific art or design project, but it provides insights into my art, design, and research. I touched on much of my knowledge areas in a course I developed for architecture students. The course is built around the notions of interdisciplinarity, design, and presentation. The learning materials pull together my experience in art and design, some of my studies in business management and work as a freelance designer, and my work with social scientists on arts-based research projects. There are many aspects of my praxis that I have not extensively written about yet, and this section will continue to expand as my career unfolds.
