I'm an interaction designer studying in the Master of Design Graduate Program at Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I worked as an architect and received my B.A. in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. I worked professionally for 4 years designing zoos, exhibits, and aquariums. My main interests are in the world of immersive technologies and studying how interactions between the digital and physical can facilitate deep decision-making choices, specifically in understanding broader and less visible concepts such as sustainability.

In my free time, I like to woodwork, paint, draw, play music, and travel. My current goal in life is to make all my own furniture - I'm about 25% there - still got a long ways to go. Additionally, I'm also a Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Firefly, and Parks & Recreation enthusiast.
