About Me

I am a second year Masters student studying Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan School of Information. My main focus has been in prototyping and designing interactions for emerging technologies like
augmented and virtual reality.

I have a BFA in Painting & Printmaking and love to make everything from sculptures and photography to knitting and pies. In my spare time, I like reading dystopian
sci-fi novels to my daughter and hiking in national parks.
