Quick Facts on

Born in Royal Oak, MI, I grew up in the northern Suburbs of Detroit. As an undergraduate at UM, I studied Cultural Anthropology and Communication Studies, and at some point stumbled upon ICT4D issues at the intersection of the two. After completing my thesis on ICT4D in Africa, moving on to study Community Informatics and Information Policy @ SI seemed a natural choice. During my undergraduate and graduate career, I worked for NPR affiliates in the Detroit area, beginning as a journalism intern at WDET in Detroit, and moving on to work as the web producer for The Environment Report at Michigan Radio. During the summer of 2010, I lived in Korea for three months while interning with the UNAPCICT (www.unapcict.org) –A United Nations commission devoted to training government leaders on a variety of ICT issues to assist them in maximize benefits received from ICT implementation in their native countries. I hope to continue similar work with an international organization upon graduation from SI. Currently, I have a basic familiarity with the software represented above. Through the course of the term, I am hoping to hone these skills, becoming more competent as a graphic designer. I think these skills will be a great and highly applicable supplement to my otherwise generally non-technical coursework.
