I'm a creative technologist who builds immersive, interactive, and story-driven experiences.
I am a freelance Creative Technologist & Principal Engineer based in Atlanta with over a decade of experience developing meaningful, well-designed, immersive experiences to engage audiences in unique and interesting stories. I’m a self-starter and fast learner, able to pick up new technologies with ease, and I have completed projects for clients such as the World of Coca-Cola, PMG, IBM, Samsung, KPMG, Walgreens, Emory University, 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 in the built environment.
I am currently available for new projects. I prioritize opportunities that leverage both my experience in creative technology and my drive to make the world a better place.

I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology 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.
I am passionate about giving back to my local community. I was the Corporate Social Responsibility lead for the Atlanta Publicis Sapient and Razorfish offices for 2 years, and I founded and led a STEAM partnership for 3rd-5th graders at a local title I elementary school from 2018-2022.
Outside of my career, I'm a dancer, a DJ, a gamer, an animal lover, and a fan of all kinds of music. In my free time, I stay physically active with yoga, weightlifting, and dance, especially Brazilian Zouk, I DJ and VJ at local events, 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 skincare products from natural ingredients, and I attend as many concerts as possible, especially those that leverage innovative technologies to create unique audience-artist interactions.
