Fullerton, CA, US



I’m interested in the creation of experiences which invite exploration and interaction: physical spaces, virtual environments, and various other forms of media. Training in landscape architecture has lead me to pursue experimentation ranging the gamut of scientific, artistic, and technological thought, and has instilled a passion for working with multidisciplinary teams, sharing a common goal of unconventional and innovative solutions.
