About me

My work has always been focused on one endeavor: creating engaging experiences. My career began on the floor of a science museum, where I led hands-on educational workshops, performed in front of hundreds of visitors and trained other educators. This laid the foundation for my work leading museum exhibit projects for one of the industry’s top firms. As a freelance consultant, I offer my expertise developing interactive exhibits and creating interpretive content. Now I am studying front end web development at Turing School of Software and Design to expand the scope of my work creating powerful, meaningful and uplifting experiences.
