What I do
I’ve done tech research, civic media projects, fieldwork, and teaching in academic and research contexts. Presently I focus on mobile UX research and design. You can view my portfolio or read my CV (pdf). I am always open to new connections in tech/mobile/media.
I wrote my graduate thesis on trends in mobile video, conducted other mobile research at a lab in Berlin & do mobile strategy at an agency in NYC. On the side, I constantly brainstorm new app ideas (theme: encouraging spontaneous, cross-cultural interactions). I’m finally starting to teach myself Xcode so I can develop a prototype.
I’ve managed websites for nonprofits, companies, educators and performers – including set up, design, content + image creation and editing, regular site maintenance, and design/management of e-communications. I use both open source and proprietary CMS platforms.
I help companies establish a presence on the internet by providing content tailored to various social platforms. I also create user engagement strategies by cultivating enthusiasm for brands through promotions, feedback, incentives and rewards. For over a decade I’ve also produced videos.
What’s with the art?
I like making pottery and paintings. I don’t care if I’m not so great at it. I do it for fun, and sometimes I take photos of what I make and put them on this website.
