Hi I’m Betty, I just moved here from DC. I graduated in May from UVA with a double major in Studio Art and Art History. I’ve always been interested in technology, so for my Studio major, I concentrated on film and animation. Unfortunately my school didn’t really have the resources I needed for the careers I wanted, so I came straight to Parsons to learn new skills.

I’m interested in interactive installations (I love love love rAndom International’s work), so that’s why I’m in the class.

I used to want to be a paleontologist, so my favorite toys were of course dinosaur figurines. I probably have over a hundred and they’re still in a box in my basement (living next to the Smithsonian = easy access to new dino toys).

I also collected the Harry Potter Lego set for about three years. I have Hogwarts, the Chamber of Secrets, Platform 9 3/4, Hagrid’s Hut…pretty much everything that came out before 2003.
