I graduated from the Maryland Institute Collect of Art (MICA) in 2007 with a BFA in sculpture. My undergraduate work focused on costume design and collage. From 2007 to 2012, I worked at the Seattle Art Museum in the curatorial and exhibition design departments. I am currently pursuing an MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons.
I am interested in integrating my fashion/costume designs with wearable technology. I want to create garments that react to wearers and the environment. I am particularly interested in doing this for storytelling/performance purposes. I am also interested in how wearable technology can be used with augmented reality.
Skills I can share: Sewing, patterning, fashion illustration, making garments out of unconventional materials, curating, exhibition design, graphic design, photography, photo editing, web design, WordPress, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects.
Skills I want to learn: Soft circuits, interactive materials, (Other means of integrating fashion and technology…?)
Other interests: Storytelling, performance, interaction design, graphic design, photography, typography, web design, emerging technologies, motion graphics, animation, illustration, augmented reality, projection mapping, physical computing, storytelling, game design, information design and visualization, interactive technology, museums, fashion, wearable technology, fine art, art history, collage.
