I’m an award-winning user experience researcher, maker, crafter & educator who can research, design & craft custom technologies, props, costumes, and everything in between.
My expertise includes:
- Mixed methods
- Virtual reality/augmented reality/XR
- User experience research and strategy
- Maker/Do-It-Yourself Culture
- Human-centered research & service design
I served as assistant professor of the Computer Science department at Sonoma State University, and prior, with my Ph.D. from Virginia Tech in Computer Science and Applications, Human-Computer Interaction.
I am known for bringing human-centered research into product design (maker class with non-profits, capstone class) to bring viable, usable products to our clients.
How can I help?
I am currently consulting and seeking opportunities with companies that need help in my areas of expertise.
If you have a tricky opportunity for technology to support people, or an intriguing interactive experience, let my skills as an interdisciplinary user experience researcher and maker/crafter help you craft the perfect experience.
I am also a decade-long advocate for women and underrepresented groups in Tech, along with an award-winning master-rank costume builder and designer!
