About

Growing up in and around Toronto, Canada, and studying video and music in undergrad, I came to New York City to pursue a master's degree at the renowned ITP at NYU Tisch. I have combined my media and story roots with physical computing, mobile development, augmented reality and code to tell new stories in innovative and exciting ways.

I have been an adjunct professor at NYU, FIT, and CUNY, teaching students to code in Python, HTML/CSS/Javascript, and Processing, and in 2017, I relocated to San Francisco to learn best-in-class development techniques on site at Apple.

As I improve my web development techniques, I continue have creative technology projects. Lately I've been exploring what is possible with ambisonic sound, messing around with AR, and using React for a mental health project and this very site.
