Today, Kelsey interviews Stephen Garrison. By day Stephen Garrison is currently an Associate Professor of Interior Architecture at Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania where he coordinates the First Year Foundation Studio sequence as well as directing the Summer high school immersion studio, Design your Future.
His alter egos include: Husband, father, coach, and artist, along with President of the non-Profit University Hall of Innovation, Producer/Director of the web series A Student’s Perspective, and Director of Communications for the Interior Design Educators Council Foundation.
If you had asked him 23 years ago coming out of the Savannah College of Art and Design with degrees in Painting and Art History just how many of these things he might imagine himself doing, chances are that many of them would not have been on the short list. But following the University Hall of Innovation motto of ‘Take Chances, Take Opportunities, and Take Control of your Education’ he has always been open to traveling down alternate paths when they seem right.
Today on Studio.chats:
➕ Going from art school to professor of interior design & making a strong impact
➕ Mindset shifts to overcome doubts of starting something new
➕ Intro to great resources to check out, A Students Perspective & University Hall of Innovation
