Who I am

Born and raised in New York City, I began my academic career studying physics with a specialization in education. After graduation I worked for 6 years at the New York Hall of Science where I held the roles of Science Instructor and later Exhibit Designer. While there, my passion for teaching science evolved into a love of creating experiences that communicate engaging content, science or otherwise, to people through the creative use of technology. After all, once you're able to communicate advanced scientific material to audiences of all ages, you can communicate any content to any one!

I then decided to shift my career in this direction by pursuing a Masters degree in Design & Technology from the Parsons School of Design. It was there, and through the experiences it led me to, that I honed my craft in both Interaction Design and creative coding. I currently work full time as a freelance Interaction Designer and Developer with a number of active projects at any given moment. I also have maintained my love of teaching by serving as Adjunct Faculty at Parsons where I teach creative coding and physical computing.
