MY PASSION FOR STORYTELLING...
drew me to non-fiction writing in college and a Masters Degree in interactive media and experience design at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).
A true generalist, my 14 years of production experience include:
- documentaries for HBO, NBC, and Discovery
- frontend coding for open source web applications
- media literacy and production workshops for Gr 7-12
- serious games for classroom use
- interactive exhibits for museums
I now work as a Product Manager / UX Consultant based in Brooklyn, NY where I continue to support creative product teams in building beautiful, user-driven products.
MY PASSION FOR EDUCATION...
I'm a "forever" student. I love learning new things. I'm also a teacher. I love sharing what I know and building creative, experimental environments -- whether in the office, studio, or classroom.
