Studying interaction design and invention processes
I use in-depth research to describe the design of new interactions and technologies, not only in theory but in practice. By gaining a better empirical understanding of design teams and design stakeholders, we can help educators work with students, tool makers improve design tools, and professionals extend their own practices of creation and communication.

City Centered: A festival of locative media and urban community
In 2010, I co-organized City Centered, a free, three-day festival of locative media and urban community in San Francisco. The event included demonstrations and installations in the Tenderloin district, a symposium in the Mission district and community training workshops. The art festival, which I co-curated, included contributions from MIT’s Senseable Cities Lab and Stamen Design.
Over two weekends, it engaged artists, educators, civic organizations and community members of all ages in exploring how how locative media can act as a platform and venue for community-led expression.
