I am a user experience designer and researcher, currently based in Minneapolis, MN.

I just recently defended my PhD at the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, Bloomington, under the advising of Eli Blevis, Jeffrey Bardzell, Shaowen Bardzell, and David Hakken. My dissertation concerns the rapid obsolescence of digital technology and its resistance by DIY culture.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in the environmental history and politics of design and consumer culture.
