I'm an ATL-based creative technologist who builds immersive, interactive, and story-driven experiences.

about me

tl;dr

I am a Senior Experience Engineer at Razorfish in Atlanta, where I've lived for the past 6 years, developing immersive experiences to engage audiences in unique and interesting stories. I've worked with a variety of hardware and software and have completed projects for clients such as the World of Coca-Cola, PMG, IBM, Porsche, Walgreens, Bacardí, T-Mobile, Michelin, NRG, and Georgia Power.

I thrive in environments where I can work with multidisciplinary teams on complex problems requiring design-forward solutions and creative uses of technology. I'm seeking opportunities that leverage both my experience in creative technology and my desire to have a positive impact, to build meaningful and well-designed physical+digital experiences. In addition, I am seeking opportunities to develop and grow my leadership and management skills, and to give back to my community, especially in the realm of educational equity.

I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, focusing in Digital Media and Human-Computer Interaction. I also received a Certificate in Social & Personality Psychology from the same university. I received my Master of Entertainment Technology degree from Carnegie Mellon University's Entertainment Technology Center in 2013.

Outside of being a creative technologist, I am the Corporate Social Responsibility lead for the Atlanta Publicis Sapient and Razorfish offices, and I lead a STEAM Club for 3rd-5th graders at a local title 1 elementary school. Outside of my career, I'm a gamer, a dog mom of an adorable German Shepherd, and a fan of all kinds of music. In my free time, I attend as many concerts as possible, I stay physically active with yoga, weightlifting, Brazilian zouk and hip-hop dance, and the martial art, Cuong Nhu, and I love to dance more than all other things. I've been trained in Carnatic (Indian Classical) singing since an early age, I make skin and hair products from natural ingredients, and I enjoy attending concerts, especially those where innovative technologies and interaction methods are used to facilitate interaction between the artist and the audience.
