Hello! Welcome to my digital play and documentation space. Glad you found your way here and are poking around ೕ(˃̵ᴗ˂̵ ๑)
I am a designer, playmaker, and educator based in New York. I sculpt circuits out of fabric and paper, create game-like learning experiences, and work hand-in-hand with communities to make epic things. Currently my practice focuses on designing performative games that combine electronics & textiles with whimsy & activism to yield embodied learning experiences that question the social spaces we’ve constructed.
My current adventure is at littleBits as Senior Manager of Learning + Engagement where work with out educator community. I previously spent four years as a Game Designer at Institute of Play, where I collaborated with teachers at Quest to Learn and led playful professional development workshops across the country on games and learning.
I teach in the MFA Design and Technology program at Parsons The New School for Design and my work has been featured in Maker Faire, Open Hardware Summit, CIANT, ACM Conference on Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interfaces Conference, Moulins Paillard, and more.
Other past adventures include hosting a web series on DIY electronics for families; facilitating EDesign Labs, a teacher-designer residency incubator; and co-founding gagdITERATION, a series of student-centered, hands-on workshops focused on creative engagement with electronics.
