My Background is in interactive design and web programming/development. I am originally from the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, and have lived between Philadelphia and NYC my entire life. I have an undergrad degree in traditional graphic design, but for the last couple years I have been almost exclusively involved in itneractive design. I was working as an interactive designer for the last couple of years, but I recently quit my job to pursue a more code/development based career. I am looking to learn as much as possible and have fun doing it.

I am taking this class to learn a lot more about prototyping and hardware, and create awesome stuff. I really want to integrate hardware and software to create new and interesting interfaces, as well as learn how to create something completely physical that can engage and excite people in a meaningful way. Also I just wanna make really cool stuff.

This is my favorite childhood toy:


Its a glow worm, it has lighting on the inside and when you squeeze it it turns the lighting on and off. I used to play with it when I couldn't sleep at night.
