AND NOW ABOUT ME:

I'm a designer because I love it. I get to solve problems where the sky's the limit and in doing so, I interact with an enormously diverse set of people (both teammates and user groups).

My biggest thrill is getting someone to switch from saying "that can't be done" to "I can do that." But this is impossible to do without an understanding of technological capability as well as the other person's mindset. Thankfully, I have a love of learning and using information to inform my designs.

When the work is done "right," the feeling of accomplishment overshadows the frustrations and confusions along the way.

EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE:

I am graduating Carnegie Mellon University this May (2010) with a BFA in Industrial Design and Human-Computer Interaction.

I've worked for Pollen Design, Inc., home to Prepara, the Robotics Institute and the Intitute for Complex Engineered Systems.
