Born and raised in Milwaukee, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 2013 with BFA in Interdisciplinary Art + Technology and received my Masters of Science in Human-Computer Interaction at DePaul in 2017. I have helped various local artists with their work specifically with electronics and coding. I also helped build exhibits at the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in a similar capacity. Recently I was working as a research assistant for the Digital Youth Network at DePaul University.
