I am a fourth year at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) studying Media Arts and Technology (MAT), where I explore the intersection of engineering, computer science, and interactive art.

In collaboration with the MAT graduate program’s faculty, I have designed an individual undergraduate major in MAT which blends together a mix of graduate, undergraduate, and independent study to create an innovative curriculum.  This self-designed major will culminate in a thesis project that demonstrates my interests in creative coding, art, and interactive technologies. 

Outside of academia, I am a member of the UCSB club tennis team as well as the manager of the Division One Women's Tennis Team. When I am not on the court, I love to be in the snow and skiing down the slopes.
