I believe that storytelling, empathy and adventure foster creativity that makes us better people and a better society. As a Media Strategist and Experience Designer, I will get you doing and discovering things you might not otherwise. My creative roots lie in documentary photography, and my current work involves games and interactive experiences (online and off).
Wanderlust Projects is my primary endeavor. We make experiences in places you aren’t supposed to be. Call it “transgressive placemaking”. The Daily Beast has pretty nice things to say about us. I consulted on the experience design and gifting system for the Night Heron Speakeasy, which has been lauded in the Atlantic and the New Yorker. For 2 years I ran a game design consultancy called Antidote. I created playful experiences for understanding complex realities with organizations like the International Federation of the Red Cross, Columbia Teachers College, the African Climate Change Resilience Network, and the Innocence Project.
Before all that, I worked in Guatemala, India, Brazil, and Ethiopia on documentary projects and collaborative media production, including a Fulbright funded project in Ethiopia. I have a degree in Design & Technology from Parsons and a degree in History from Eugene Lang, both colleges of The New School University.
Of all my accomplishments, few will top being voted “Most Likely to Discover Time Travel” by my junior high classmates.
