  • What I do, where I work

  • At Boston Children’s Museum, I develop community-based programs and exhibits. Currently, I’m working on responsive programming exploring health and fitness learning with families who live in Boston public housing. I’m also an independent exhibit developer, and designed the Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute, the interactive store and exploration space for the writing program 826Boston (started by Dave Eggers in San Francisco as 826Valencia— www.826boston.org). Ask me about unicorn tears and sasquatch toenails, and whether bigfoot exists.
