I am a systems thinker & people lover and thrive in collaboration with others to create, discover, and uncover together. Through curiosity and wonder, I’m fascinated, inspired and impassioned by the human ability to shift perspective and perception and effectively enhance or transform one’s experience. With this in mind, I design experiences that aim for engaging, interesting, useful, and fun.

I've taught with amazing educational organizations such as Vision Education and Media and the NYC Center for Space Science Education, among others. At the New York Hall of Science I opened the Maker Space, engaged in all things maker related and collaborated with Björk to implement her Biophilia Educational Project.

As the co-founder of RapidFTR, my research aided the development of an innovative mobile & desktop application and database system that assisted the incredible efforts involved in the family tracing and reunification process led by UNICEF and other NGOs. And most recently, I produced Brooklyn Bugs, New York’s first 3-day festival that celebrates and explores the gastronomical and sustainable aspects of entomophagy (edible insects) .

From research and strategy to prototyping and testing, I design experiences and solutions with a user-centered approach to help deliver better products and services to people.
I enjoy crafting fun interactive projects like presence detecting, self-inflating sculptures and a visual musical interface that incorporates a lightsaber for live performance.
Communicating, connecting, and coordinating. Whether it's bringing you the incredible world of edible insects or an amazing amalgam of music & community: making it happen.
