Bil je predavatelj za video in nove medije na visokošolskih zavodih (2007–2018 predavatelj in docent za področje novi mediji/vizualna kultura in komunikacije na Fakulteti za dizajn v Ljubljani; 2012–2018 asistent za področje videa in novih medijev na Akademiji za likovno umetnost in oblikovanje Univerze v Ljubljani).
