I am a first-year PhD Student at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington.

I do research in Human-Computer Interaction with James Fogarty and Jon Froehlich. I completed my bachelors in 2019 at the University of Chicago, where I did research with Blase Ur and worked with Patrick Jagoda on the 2017 ARG the parasite.

I'm also a computational artist, transmedia game designer, puzzle creator, and tabletop gaming enthusiast.
