Compilation of my favorite immersive experiences seen in-person

I’m an immersive artist making dreamlike experiences with code. Pictures that paint themselves, rooms that come to life – moments that resist being put into words. When I’m not crafting them, I’m chasing them. :)

So far, my favorite projects include a glowing indoor forest synced to your heartbeat, an interactive video wall that bursts with color as you dance & wave in front of it, and (WIP!) a light installation that combines 32 origami birds with projection mapping.

I’m in love with ethereal, otherworldly visuals and stepping into the unknown. Moment Factory, teamLab & Meow Wolf are major inspirations to me.


Creative Technology

I develop interactive art, immersive installations, and augmented reality experiences. My work makes use of sensors, computer vision, game engines, creative coding, and projection mapping.

I'm proficient in rapid prototyping, creating 3D realtime content, and exploring new technologies.

Processing, Unity, Unreal Engine, Arduino, JavaScript, PoseNet, openFrameworks

Immersive Experience Design

I excel at conceptualizing and planning the core elements of an immersive experience. Through light, sound, visuals, and technology, I can shape how a space looks, feels, and responds to a viewer.

My strengths include visualizing ideas, sketching layouts & user flows, and thinking up various possibilities for input & interaction.
