At Lehigh University, I studied cognitive science with a minor in computer science with the intent of finding applications for psychology in an engineering field. To this day I continue to draw from the interdisciplinary education I received in fields such as psychology, athropology, philosophy, and artificial intelligence.
Since graduating I have learned how to apply my education in computer science to augment my skills in design meetings with developers.
After working in manufacturing, defense, and robotics, I have learned that whether you’re talking about jet pilots or valve assemblers, the need for usability and accessibility transcends professions.
In my free time I enjoy crafting stories for tabletop roleplaying game adventures with friends, playing guitar, and going for hikes with my family.
