I am a New York City-based artist and designer exploring the intersection of the built environment and digital technologies.

As I grew up here, Central Park was my backyard and the city my playground. I developed loves for architecture and urbanism early, as well as a critical engagement with the issues that underly them. Simultaneously, through computer science, I became fascinated by the active and responsive manipulation of virtual space. Through physical computing I learned I could merge the two: the playground, so to speak, became of my own derivation. Its logic was easy to adjust and explore, and working in the physical domain, to me, meant working in grounded and veritably human experience.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in architectural history from Brown University and, beginning this fall, will be pursuing a Master of Architecture at Columbia University GSAPP. I have also conducted coursework at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, as well as held professional positions in experience/exhibition design and real estate development. My work has been nominated for award by the Media Architecture Institute, covered by ArchDaily, Designboom, and Hyperallergic, and exhibited internationally.
