Currently, I am performing UX research for clients while simultaneously finishing an academic research project exploring whether an interactive medium inspired by "immersion" and meditative practice can help teach people to self-regulate their own stress and anxiety.
I will finish my academic projects in a year or two, at which point I'm hoping to flip this entire state of affairs on its head! I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to develop my creative expertise to such depth, and I will be actively seeking challenges which will benefit people, society and culture when I finally enter the next transition.
technology, media, expression, user experience, immersion, music, experience, truth, design methods, ideation, solving problems, research... did I mention music?
Your experiences are only clues; it's up to you to piece them together into your own unique understanding.

I was invited to TEDActive 2011 for the Travel project, and it was simultaneously humbling, intimidating, exciting, invigorating, euphoric, and terrifying. Returning to TEDActive 2012, I will be setting up my project, the Sonic Cradle, for everyone to try! I will also be actively seeking opportunities for collaboration and contemplation toward positive outcomes, both during and after the conference.
