In the academic career I designed, directed, consulted to and established new creative programs at: Pratt; Columbia U; RMCAD, where I founded “International Animation” and ASIFA-CO; and CCS where I was granted full professor. Invited by NTU, I spearheaded curriculum and building design for the new School of Art, Design & Media. Then also oversaw launch of the School of Technology for the Arts, both in Singapore. As Visiting Professor, I was invited to Kadir Has, Istanbul; Kyoto University, Japan. As endowed Ko Guan Chair to Beijing University. In both creative and academic projects, I forever focus on inspiring imagination, self-discovery, experimentation, ideation sparking empowerment and hunger for creative self-expression. Feb ‘23 as Fulbright Grantee I conducted a month of Imagination Workshops @ women university, Pakistan

I see imagination as the Origin of inspiration, individuality, ideation, innovation and invention. Imagination Workshops I conduct explore Creator’s sways in probing ideas, metamorphic stories, worlds of un-realities and ways of visualizing them. These I’ve conducted in: Germany, Malaysia, Poland, Singapore, S. Korea, UAE, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Hong Kong, Japan, Israel, Netherlands, Turkey, Sweden, China, Cuba, USA.

Travel has exposed me to cultures, lifestyles and enriching realities inspiring my passion for photography as well as art and concept design. My photography from Ireland, Peru, Thailand, Taiwan, Oman, Cambodia, Japan, China, Morocco, Lebanon, Jordan, France, Spain and Sicily are seeking exhibiting and publishing.

Seamlessly fusing reality & virtuality into a dimension inspiring imagination, I design concepts probing new horizons and ways to entertain, learn, design exhibits, perform, play or fuse interactivity, VR or AR into the “magic wand” enabling us to envision fantastic “un-realities” as far reaching as our imagination allows us. Within them, by controling chemical & physical properties of one’s worlds, we become the ultimate Creator.

I seek technical and practical support for project ideas probing “gravity free & reality independent prospects.
As a Fulbright Specialist till Oct ‘24, I welcome worldwide cultural, science museums, academic and artistic institutions or festivals attracted to my Imagination Workshops, creative or academic projects and designs.
