Hey there! Welcome to my website. I am a cultural anthropologist doing ux research for government.
I earned a PhD in Anthropology from Rice University in 2013. Until 2016, I worked at MIT teaching classes in anthropology, communication and politics. With artist Katarzyna Balug, I cofounded Department of Play, an art+ethnography collective. Through multiple place-making grants, including an ArtPlace grant, we spent three years researching Boston neighborhoods, and using that research to make playful experiences to connect people. I currently work making experiences of other sort--I produce resonant and culturally sensitive web content to communicate science to English and Spanish speakers in the US.
