I develop, produce, and implement captivating and impactful multimedia experiences, blending creative and technical skills to produce powerful and memorable immersive and interactive multimedia for audiences of all ages. I have a keen understanding of experience and interaction design that leads to highly engaging informal learning experiences.

At the Minnesota Historical Society, I manage and provide creative and technical direction to a team of multimedia professionals to produce experiences for local and traveling museum exhibits, education and curricular products, online interpretation, mobile applications, social media, digital signage, marketing and other media and technology projects.

My formal education includes a B.F.A in Film Production from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

LinkedIn Profile



I believe in a story-first approach to multimedia development and utilize first-person narratives wherever possible. A good story is enduring and will outlast any technology used to deliver it.


Once the story is determined, attention is focused on crafting the experience and media design that will most clearly connect with the audience and maintain a sense of beauty and elegance.


When developing media delivery systems, I concentrate on robust yet appropriate system design, always balancing function and reliability with cost.
