I’m a bit of a jane-of-all-trades. Originally from a fine arts background, over the years I’ve explored a large part of the digital design domain. I enjoy adapting to new innovations and practices, but these are some of the core skills I intend on keeping.
Recently I’ve been teaching English in Shizuoka, Japan. I am rigorously studying Japanese, traveling, and enjoying cultural immersion. You can peek into my mind via my journal.
Before Japan, the ArtSciLab was my second home, a STEAM-focused research lab at UT Dallas. I worked under Roger Malina, and was the creative director of Creative Disturbance, a multilingual, international podcast project created by our team. We successfully funded Creative Disturbance on Kickstarter over $20k.
I did a ton of work for my senior capstone project, LangJam (my heart and soul). This project was an ambitious attempt at creating flexible models for linguistic data using a whimsical, fun approach.
I helped co-found UT Dallas’ first User Experience Organization and was VP and President for the first year. I initiated a relationship with the Big Design Conference in Dallas, (check out our sketchnote mission) as well as gained sponsorships and campaigned for student engagement.
