Every day I wake up energized to be doing what I love most. While I understand that my anti-disciplinary background is trending, sometimes it can be hard to see how I can be a good fit for collaboration. Explore some of my skills and services below:
Delivering multi-sensory stories- whether it's through your brainwaves or by reconstructing the smell of your first car- thinking out of the box is my strength. With a Master of Science from MIT Media Lab, I embody the imagination of an artist with the executional standards of an engineer. I have delivered inspiration to clients such as IDEO, Asian Art Museum, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and Estée Lauder.

I hold a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and have over seven years of experience in environmental design. In addition to built environments I am versatile in a full suite of VR tools such as UNITY and Unreal Engine.
The industrial design of unconventional objects is a specialty of mine, especially when it relates to the body. I have over four years of experience designing wearable technologies. From CNC milling, laser cutting, 3D printing, polymer casting, wood working, even digital knitting- I have over 15 years of experience making with a broad range of tools.
