I came of age in the late 90’s learning how to hack and phreak through my Packard Bell’s dial-up and social networking through GeoCities Teen chat rooms.
After years of professional singing and tending bar in some of the swankiest joints around Detroit, I left the nightlife behind and obtained my BA in four-field anthropology from Wayne State University in Detroit.
I am currently pursuing graduate studies in human-computer interaction research and mixed reality at the University of Michigan School of Information in Ann Arbor.
I love MOOCs, books/audiobooks, the MCU, and rescue animals #AdoptDontShop. I’m a sometimes musician, and I still like to pwn noobs in WoW.
