In 2015, along with Caroline Sinder, current director, and other women from Code Liberation, we founded Facets, an interdisciplinary creative coding, interactive art, and videogames un-conference. FACETS is a conversational based creative un-conference with a focus on underrepresented voices and demographics in STEM and art.Watch last year's conference. Pro tip. Chelsea Manning, Kate Crawford and Jer Thorp's panel was exceptional

Devotion Gallery was a gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn from 2009 - 2014 that was at the intersection of art, science, media, and design. We presented cross-disciplinary work drawing from architecture, computation, gaming, biology, fabrication, interface design, open-source communities, cloud computing, sound, and complexity.

Dozen Eyes

Dozen Eyes was a game studio in Brooklyn, NY founded in Spring of 2013 and closed at the end of 2015. I founded it with Ben Johnson. We focused on applied games, museum installations and intelligently playful experiences. Previous Work

People often ask me, "Do you ever sleep?" Not like you do. I wake up at 3.30 AM and read Sci-fi until 5am. Maybe that's my problem. Really though, the answer is I never do things alone. I build communities of people and together, we do far more than I could ever do alone. I get by, with a little help from my friends.

Public Speaking

I speak as an advocate for inclusion in STEAM and Video Games. Also, I do talks about my own work and tech breakdowns on interesting topics. My speaking appearances include Resonate, A Maze, Indiecade, GDC and more. Watch one here.
