i am an artist-at-heart, a taurus, and a graduate from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program as of spring 2020. previously, i've worked as a product designer at Codecademy and Girls Who Code, and studied computer science at MIT.
i am an interdisciplinary artist/designer/technologist, driven by the cultural change that emerges when we work outside the silos of disciplines. i'm particularly excited by how art and design can be modes of intervention into dominant narratives of computing technology.
as a designer who's worked in CS education, i'm interested in ways to transform gate-keeped fields, like programming, to be more accessible, inclusive, and human - weaving a commitment to sociocultural awareness in the design for user needs.
as an artist, i'm interested in co-opting technological processes to carve space for radical vulnerability and sensitivity in a world that does not traditionally bring justice to these values - all within a self-reflexive, speculative, and research-based practice.
finally, as a technologist with a 5+ year background in web programming, i specialize in implementing interactive, web-based experiences - bringing interventions to life with meticulous care, and playfully challenging ideas of what software "should" be.
i'm open to opportunities for freelance or full-time work, artistic collaboration, or having a coffee or bubble tea. don't be afraid to get in touch!
