I am a creative technologist hailing from New Jersey and currently reside in Los Angeles, California. At the University of Southern California, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation with emphases in interactive media and visual and cultural communication. I also have a minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures.
Having lived in Germany as a child and spending a semester in the United Kingdom studying at the University of Sussex, I am passionate about different global perspectives and bringing people together through good design. I am constantly looking to push boundaries of interdisciplinary innovation, especially with my coursework in interaction design. I am interested in how storytelling, especially in video games, can play a larger impact on society and the global community.
This May I will be conducting my own research in Tokyo on how the representation of females in Japanese video games impact Japanese society. I will be participating in USC's Global East Asia program and partnering with students at Meiji University.
