I am a Sr. User Experience Researcher at Synaptics. My work is situated at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Human Augmentation. I design, implement and study novel input technology in the areas of mobile, tangible & non-visual interaction, assistive augmentation and automotive UX.

Beyond code & electronics, I am in to guitars, volleyball and cooking. I am a bike nerd, so-so photographer and snowboard newbie.
