Seattle Wa, January – June 2013
During the six months I interned at Amazon I had the unique opportunity of leading my own project to completion, but most importantly I learned the value of communication, organization, and leadership and how these soft skills fit into my role as a designer. I led reviews and attended user test studies for my project, as well as discussed internally with Amazon colleagues from around the world to create the best possible product.
UW Senior Capstone Project, March – June 2013
Newspaper Napoleon was my final, “Capstone” project to round out my UW Design undergraduate degree. In my eyes this was an opportunity to combine everything I’d learned over the past four years with one of my greatest ambitions: to create a videogame. Design colleague Jon Sandler, me, and a team of three developers came together to create Newspaper Napoleon in only nine weeks, despite having next to zero game design experience. Tough decisions had to be made and corners were cut, but most importantly of all valuable lessons were learned. This experience has inspired me to continue to build videogames either for fun, or professionally, and continue to bring my skill as an Interaction Designer to the entertainment screens of people everywhere.

Legend of the Fire Spirit
Ghostworks, Collab/Fab and Twispworks, Twisp Wa, Spring 2012
The Legend of the Fire Spirit installation was designed and built for the culture and history of the Eastern Washington town Twisp. It builds on the regional tradition of myth and storytelling to explain the dynamic between people, forest, fire and how it evolved as time passed.
The installation provides a cyclical experience, where the viewer first travels forward through the installation, seeing a myth about fire and the Methow Valley. The story is depicted through a series of projected icons upon the boards which create a perspective illusion, changing the experience depending on where the viewer stands. The installation was built into a shed on the site of TwispWorks, a community organization.
