I am currently a Product Designer at IBM, designing complex systems for a wide variety of users. While my works cover a broad spectrum of domains, they all center around my passion for merging technology, storytelling and art to create interactive and emotionally engaging experiences.
My journey into digital storytelling began when I submitted a stop motion animation for a college application. As one of the first students in the US to submit a video as part of the general college application, I was completely caught by surprise when (literally, my first video ever) went viral and ended up in major media outlets such as The New York Times, Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor and CNN. Seeing people enjoy my silly stop motion convinced me to pursue new media in college.
In 2015, I graduated with a MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School for Design. Prior to that, I double majored in art history and studio art at the University of Virginia.
In my free time, you can find me practicing circus performance, getting lost in museums, and seeking pugs in the concrete jungle. You can find my more experimental side projects on Ello.
