Academics

In May, 2019, I completed my graduate studies by receiving a M.S. in Technology, Media and Society with a focus in Creative Technologies and Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Coursework from my graduate program covered a wide range of fields, including Virtual Reality, Human-Robot Interaction, Experience Design, Haptics and Project Management.

 

For my undergraduate program, I was a Creative Technologies Major with a Minor in Business Management. I was the HackBerry Lab technician for the Summer of 2015 and was a Product Design intern at Hey Joe Coffee/Rubix in the Atlanta Tech Village from May, 2016 to May, 2017. During that time, I worked on several projects for Hey Joe Coffee, and has been funded to develop his own prototype for manufacture and sale.
