About

I grew up in Bethany, Oklahoma; a suburb of Oklahoma City.

I went to school in San Diego, CA and lived there an extra three years before moving to New York City for more school and work.

My main areas of academic focus are interactive design, design thinking, new media applications, emerging technologies, rapid prototyping, usability testing and experience design.

In 2010 I moved from New York City to Kansas City to begin teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute.

I was married in 2015 at Kaw Point Park on the banks of the Missouri and Kansas River.

I am now a teacher/designer/experimenter/tinkerer living in Kansas City.

We have two cats, and a dog named JPEG.
