Appearing: Saturday, Sunday
Passionate about empowering people to craft, make and build, I'm an award-winning master-level cosplayer and professor. With 10+ years of cosplaying and costume building, I enjoy sharing the love of craft and helping others in their cosplays.
I got my Ph.D researching, designing, and making technology to help designers, hobbyists, and cosplayers find materials online. Along the way, I became a costume shop assistant, costume builder, cosplayer, and educator. That sprung me to being a maker professor and a multimedia cosplayer specializing in drafting, craftsmanship, and electronics.
Awards I have won included Best Recreation, 1st place masters division craftsmanship, Best Cosplay/Prop from Make Media, and more recently, their Amazing Maker Award finalist. I'm excited for opportunities in the User Experience Researcher and Maker domains!
Creating The Improbable.
We believe in every single person’s ability to create the improbable and to learn about themselves and the world in the process. Like any artifact worth searching for, sometimes all it takes is a bit of digging in the right place to find your unique ability. We seek to aid in this endeavor.
At SiliCon with Adam Savage, our goal is to bring together people who have long histories of creating, from filmmakers and actors, to artists, authors, engineers, scientists, technologists, and makers to share their creativity and enthusiasm. We know that the sum of all this interaction is greater than its individual parts. We celebrate the spark we get when we meet new people, surmount new challenges, exult and share with each other.
