About Me

Welcome!

 

I'm an Immersive Interactive Artist and Designer. My specialty is in the design and development of interactive experiences in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.  I have skills with virtual world creation and interactivity using Unity or Unreal Engine. 

 

I graduated from Otis College of Art and Design with a degree in Digital Media and an emphasis on 3D design and virtual reality development. I also have a minor in creative writing.

I received an MFA in Media Arts at the University of Montana.  My research used innovative technology and creativity to create empathetical user-based works of art. 

Open to collaboration.  Available to move or work remotely.
