I thrive on collaboration and I can build, develop and curate almost anything. Let’s explore ways to work together!
 

Request For Interest (RFI)

I just finished up a year of experimentation as a fellow at BuzzFeed’s Open Lab for Journalism, Technology and the Arts. Let’s work together! 

For the better part of the past year I’ve been prototyping wearable, embedded cameras. Before that, I was an Engineering Project Manager and Quality Assurance tester at Apple. I also play records for dance floors and events all across the globe. 

Why you should hire me

Experimentation is my jam!

My work thrives at the intersection of play and human systems. How can we engage audiences and bring them together for a memorable activation? 

I’m captivated by parallel innovation.

The idea of simultaneously bringing up two products for mutual benefit is attractive, especially if one of the product uses is that of social good. How can we inject play, profit and impact into your next project? 

I have interdisciplinary interest.

I’m a neo-polymath and use my spectrum of knowledge to connect the dots within a set of solutions. I believe there are many ways to solve a problem so together we can look at a wide range of fixes and determine the best fit. 

I’m a very direct communicator

Don’t spend time anywhere around the bridge - let’s just walk over it together. I value directness and utilize tools that make client communication easy and efficient.

I use fresh eyes to see new problems. 

I don’t get stuck in the for loop of common wisdom. Some call the color "green", I call it yellow + blue. I like taking a step back to see what is presumed and what can use a fresh perspective.

I’m able to make complex ideas consumable.

I use plain language and metaphors to communicate complex ideas so you don't have to figure out what I'm talking about. I benefit the same way when you talk about your industry. Ultimately, we learn from one another. Let’s talk about your needs!
