In Their Own Words

"I have been active in international education for more than 15 years, and I have been a professor on Berklee's Valencia campus since the inception of the campus. From day one, it has been vital that the local culture be an integral part of the professor-student learning experience."

"Valencia in particular and Spain in general are a living and dynamic extension of my classroom. In an ever-changing and complex world, it is essential that my students engage, analyze, and benefit from the local cultural patrimony as they mature intellectually as individuals while enhancing the collective experience."
