I am an Associate Pro!essor o! Graphic Design at the University of Florida (UF). In 2004 I began the Design for Development (D4D) initiative in which graphic design students and faculty work with artisans, farmers, and organizers in Maya communities to explore ways design can foster local development projects. I was awarded a Fulbright-García Robles Scholar grant (2006–2007) and a Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad grant (2007). In 2008 I received the inaugural American Institute o! Graphic Arts (AIGA) Design Research Grant to continue the D4D initiative and presented papers on aspects of this work at several con!erences, including
GLIDE ‘10: Global Interaction in Design—where I was awarded best paper. I contributed to the Icograda Design Education Mani!esto Update, and my article “Identity and Representation: (Yucatec) Maya in the Visual Culture of Tourism” was recently published in the Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies Journal.
