Through curiosity and wonder, I’m fascinated, inspired and impassioned by the human ability to shift perspective and perception and effectively enhance or change one’s experience. With this in mind, I design and build digital and/or physical interactive experiences and strive for engaging, interesting, useful and often playful.
I am a graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) in the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, an alum of the awesome Red Bull Music Academy, and an educator and user experience designer.
I’ve worked with amazing educational organizations such as Vision Education and Media, the NYC Center for Space Science Education, and The Makery among others. Some of the work I’ve done with them include teaching youth and adults how to build, program, and engineer LEGO robotic things as well as other fun stuff with various electronics, 3D printers, and the Arduino microcontroller. I also opened the Maker Space and did all things maker related for the New York Hall of Science. Last, but not least – I’m a proud co-founder of RapidFTR, a mobile application and database system that assists the incredible efforts that go into the family tracing and reunification process. It is currently being deployed in the field by UNICEF.
I love helping to empower others as well as assisting them in unleashing their creativity through the discovery of new tools and/or processes, and hopefully – new possibilities. What you’ll find on this site are samplings of my collaborative projects, personal explorations, and professional work.
On another note, I am….
Erratic, ecstatic, mentally nomadic, eclectic and interjected. More boombastic than bombastic. Bits of wit surprise like revealed lies and fireflies. A little lightning to bug you out.
There’s so much color in this world – and so much in the dark. I’m here to ride on the rainbow, but I have my night-vision goggles handy.
I like fly things, to try things, got no gold rings, sometimes wish I had wings and wonder how things operate. I’m into vision, decision and the human condition. Yeah!
