About Me

I am a 3D Artist turned Experience Designer with nearly a decade of experience working creatively in support of emerging technology research.

Most of my projects have required close working relationships with technical experts in fields such as robotics and machine learning.  I have learned how to lead creative teams through the process of translating technology into products with narratives that are engaging and useful for everyday people. The success of these collaborations has resulted in my work being featured at the Walt Disney World Parks, major retailers including Walmart, as well as SIGGRAPH, San Diego Comic-Con, and Dutch Design Week.

 

I value solutions that prioritize play, welcome emergent behavior and invite people to reflect meaningfully on the world they live in.
