I'm a designer of interactivity for several platforms including web, mobile, and physical installation with an emphasis on exhibition and set design. My research involves new ways of UX for web using 3-dimensional environments for marketing. I'm also interested in immersive worlds using the human body as a tool to make environments react, change and fluctuate with motion, light, and audio sensing through physical computing & circuitry.
My research further involves changing our perception of digital experiences, seeking to bring the human closer to an interface -- making our senses a key factor in interactivity. I aim my sight at further movement away from the keyboard - or any simple switch - to a completely experiential interface.
I have a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Fine Arts in Design and Technology from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City.
Previously a costume designer for theatre, television, and film in Los Angeles, I've worked and lectured internationally in France, Italy and Russia and currently reside in New York City.
