Makerspace builder, innovation consultant, new media artist, educator. Manager of the Maker Hub, Georgetown University's makerspace. Former Founding and Senior Manager of the MediaLab at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Hi! I get up to all sorts of trouble, but in a nutshell I do creative and help others do creative.
I'm the Founding Manager of the Maker Hub at Georgetown University.
I was the Founding and Senior Manager of the MediaLab at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2012 I was tasked with establishing a space for experimentation at the intersection of art, technology, and the museum experience. By working closely with NYC's creative technology community, the MediaLab developed a worldwide reputation for consistently delivering provocative, exciting, and valuable projects.
Lessee, what else... I've traveled around the world, consulting with museums, universities, governments, and religious organizations on how to develop space for creativity and innovation. I advise entrepreneurs and students on project development. I serve as technical lead for cultural projects. I help multimedia artists develop new works. I create digital art systems and use them to perform my own compositions. I design and create art objects using digital fabrication and vintage tech.
I like people, experiences, AND things.
