I am the Head of Digital Learning and Innovation at the Fowler Museum responsible for digital engagement online and in-gallery for the “Engaging Lived Religion in the 21st Century” project under the Lilly Foundation Grant. I am an Adjunct Lecturer at USC’s Iovine and Young Academy focusing on the intersection of design and technology and at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering teaching Design for User Experience. I am also an Adjunct Professor in the Graphic Design Department at Woodbury University. Previously I was Director of Museum and Special Projects at yU+co, a Hollywood-based innovation studio, where I specialized in digital experiential design, augmented reality, visualizations utilizing machine learning, large scale projection mapping and 3D creative programming for entertainment and education. Before joining yU+co I was an award winning Senior Designer at the J. Paul Getty Museum for 12 years. As Senior Designer I oversaw both temporary and permanent collection exhibition development, design, fabrication and installation including all aspects of exhibition and environmental graphics, spatial design, display furniture and promotional branding for over 60 exhibitions. From 1993 to 2000 I was the lead exhibition designer and chair of the Signage Department at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Immigration Museum in New York.
