About Darlene C. Ritz

Dr. Darlene C. Ritz is the Chair of Fashion Design at RMCAD and owner of DCR studios. As a Doctor of Education and a fashion designer, Darlene has been training the next generation of fashion industry professionals since 2003. Prior to that, she worked as a fashion designer, marketing, and sales rep in New York and Los Angeles for companies all around the world.

About Samuel Helms

Dr. Samuel Helms has taught composition, statistics, and symbolism for 20 years, and the last seven of those at RMCAD. His Ph.D is in Educational Technology with a Doctoral Minor in Applied Statistics and Research Methods. Over the last two years, he has used his background in qualitative research to analyze and synthesize astrology charts. Dr. Helms met his Twin Flame last October, and their combined energy has enhanced his skills in astrology, numerology, reiki healing, tarot, and, recently, channeling a group he calls “The Seven.” Together as Twin Flames, Samuel and Tina started growing their Rose Garden utilizing their combined energies to heal mind, body, and spirit.


The Faculty Focus Series provides an opportunity to highlight and celebrate RMCAD faculty’s work and accomplishments as artists, researchers, and practitioners. Throughout this exciting and ongoing series, faculty members provide insight into their creative endeavors outside of the classroom and how those activities influence and energize their expertise and leadership within the RMCAD community.
