Before returning to Parsons School of Design (6/96-6/98) to study design and the internet, I worked in communications positions, including editing, PR writing and grant writing. Concurrently, I was studying painting, acting and theatrical writing.
This multimedia training gives me a range of creative skill and media experience particularly suited to new media design and content creation.
