I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia (UGA) researching design processes inclusive of disability, specifically exploring accessibility in interaction design and adaptive fashion.

I connect my research to design and disability communities as CEO of Open Style Lab (OSL), a Smithsonian National award-winning nonprofit organization that creates designs inclusive of disability. My teaching practice is focused on helping people develop creative strategies to apply inclusive design principles and critically think about the social implications of disability in a design process.

Before joining UGA, I taught at The New School, Parsons School of Design and have guest lectured at MIT, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania. Earlier in my career, I was UX Designer and Design Strategist for Mobile Device research team at Samsung Electronics, Ltd in South Korea. A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts, I also serve on jury committees and organizations that advance the arts & design.
