I am a PhD candidate in the Human Centered Computing program at the University of Florida’s Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering Department. I am a student in Dr. Juan Gilbert’s Human Experience Research Lab studying the interactions between Technology and Disability Justice.

I have over 10 years of industry experience in video game development, system design, and 3D modeling and animation. I have also taught undergraduate level coursework in game design, 3D modeling, animation, and storytelling.

I live just outside Gainesville, FL with my husband and two children, plus one on the way.
