personal stuff: I’m Audubon. I’m from Philly but spent many years in Boston (with Mexico, NL, the UK, and Germany in between) and now I live in New York City. I really like clouds, videography, volunteering for Burmese rights orgs, early Marlon Brando films, kids, motorcycles, poetry, ice cream, international travel, human rights activism, and technology. I did a bit of filmmaking & mobile research, and now I paint and read/watch a lot of Game of Thrones.
professional stuff: I was trained in writing & anthropology, but enjoy learning interactive communication and investigating/designing projects around mobile multimedia production. After day-jobbing in the human/labor rights arena for seven years, I spent 3.5 years at MIT, where I got my masters degree in Comparative Media Studies, worked as a research associate at the Center for Civic Media, and made tons and tons of mediocre ceramic bowls from the wonderful, heaven-sent MIT pottery studio. I also did film projects with teenagers, spent some time in Peru making a documentary about internet adoption, published some papers and a book chapter and got to travel a bit and present at tech conferences. Now I’m in NYC working as digital director for a comedy website, and I maintain a position as Research Affiliate for the CMS department of MIT.
If you’re concerned that I go through life wearing M&M costumes and you need some assurance that I can in fact clean up and be a professional, this headshot is for you.
