I am the Creative Director at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (the “d.school”).  As a member of the d.school since the early days, I have and continue to work on a variety of projects, from shaping the future vision of the institute to designing the many iterations of the d.school’s various homes on Stanford’s campus.  I teach several classes in subjects at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling & visual communication, improv, and digital media design.


Broadly, my work focuses on how physical context (environments) and digital media (films, interactions) can enhance creativity. As an artist, my large-scale digital installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco.


I have degrees in Film from the University of California, Los Angeles (BA ’96), and Learning, Design, & Technology from Stanford University (MA ’06).
