I grew up in Flowery Branch, Georgia and now live in Portland, Oregon.
I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Informatics at UC Irvine.
My research is about the everyday experience of ubiquitous computing in the United States – smartphones, tablets, and smart watches. I am interested in how these technologies are part of a more diffuse and systemic ethos of limitlessness – a striving towards, and belief in the possibility of, always doing ‘more.’
In 2014, I taught the human-computer interaction class at UCI with a custom syllabus designed to stress the relationships among design practice, ethics, culture, and computing technology.
