Originally from Philadelphia, with a background as a professional ballet dancer, my education has given me an unconventional set of skills. Working best in a hands-on, multi-media environment my focus is on physical and computer-aided prototyping, blue sky ideation, and concept marketing and presentation. Performing on stages most of my life has given me the ability to lead a room comfortably, but also actively engage with members of my team by listening to their ideas and aiding in their communication. One of the most important things I've learned in my career which drives my work, is how failure is as valid as success. I am not afraid to speak up and ask questions, look at problems from an outside perspective, and go against the norm in an effort to discover what could be possible. My practice as a creator reaches far outside of toy design, and I hope to use my experiences to make products that are both impactful and purely playful.

The game of neural linkage and color connection! In our body, cells called Neurons transmit electrical impulses and chemical signals between areas of the brain and our nervous system. Consisting of two basic parts, an axon and a dendrite, these tree like structures are used to transmit and receive messages.

In the game Synapse, players will compete mentally to make synaptic color connections that outsmart their opponent!
