I am currently the Director of Innovation and Design at a Boston area school, where I support faculty and students in exploring creative learning and critical making. I teach two computer science courses which lean heavily in the direction of creative and expressive applications of CS. Additionally, I run a 1,500 square foot creative space called the I.D.E.A Hub, equipped with a variety of both traditional tools, like sewing machines and cameras, as well as more cutting edge tools, like 3D printers, and laser cutters.
Previously, I worked as a Creative Learning Designer in the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, designing educational experiences which engage learners in creative programming activities with Scratch, and creating content which supports the work of educators across a variety of learning environments.
Outside of my day job, I regularly work as a Teaching Fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Education, and participate in a variety of educational projects combining the visual arts with technology.
