interaction design + literary arts

Tell me about yourself

I am an interaction designer and artist, working with digital media since the late 1990s. I have produced a wide range of work in installation, performance, and literature, as well as web, mobile, app, and game design.

I have degrees in Cognitive Science, Interactive Telecommunications, and Literary Arts. And a first-degree black belt in Aikido.

My client work includes user experience design and content strategy for clients such as Samsung, IBM, Kaplan, Nike, Sesame Workshop, Martha Stewart, Lego, as well as a number of smaller start-ups.

A central theme in my practice is the critical role that interface plays in our relationship with and experience of technology.

What are you working on?

I am currently working with a fitness competition startup, FitFight, and teaching part-time at Parsons School of Design.

I'm creating a digital literature project about femininity, eroticism, and power in footwear called The Red Shoes I Wore.
