I have been inspired by and super curious about patterning metal since I first started taking classes at @LillStreet last year. Here is a steel plate that I bought last season, along with a pair of earrings that are a work in progress.
I am an anthropologist and user experience (UX) executive. I lead a team that works in the healthcare space on both licensable software and custom client solutions. As an anthropologist, my research has focused on work practices and work environments. I have a special interest in how institutions respond to macro-economic, industry, and regional trends, and how the resulting organizational changes affect the lives of employees.
