| Combining words and sounds and
images to tell the story is challenging--and fun. But the most important
element in multimedia work is the end user: creating a stimulating
and satisfying experience is the goal.
Projects detailed here include web site, CD-ROM, and museum
installation prototype samples. Interactive design links, including
museum-related resources, will soon follow.

People; Everyday Lives:
What Was It Like to Live in the Netherlands in the 17th Century?
Authorware project based on Dutch genre art; it intertwines music,
art, and history in an interactive multimedia format that encourages
the learner to explore connections.
New York Folklore
The meeting component
of the NYFS site I created provided appropriate meeting details--and also
a rich contextual background that laid the framework for folklorists' serious
(and enjoyable) exploration of the regional traditions of Long Island.
Professionals in the Liberal Arts Tradition
When Ithaca College's
director of admission needed an interactive CD-ROM for recruiting,
my boss tossed the project my way, pretty certain I wouldn't be able
to pull it off in the very short time frame we had. I surprised him:
40 main screens, with text, audio, stills and video clips.
I designed this lively
site to promote and provide information about the Ithaca affiliate operation
of an international educational program that encourages early learning
and creativity in young children through music
Interactive exhibit design mockups
As an intern at Paul
Allen's Seattle-based music museum, I worked on the early development of
several Soundlab exhibits, including the prototype for one called Match
Museums and the
In 1999, I chaired
a multimedia panel presentation in New Orleans with speakers from Brazil,
Kenya, and the U.S addressing the ways in which museums are beginning
to establish genuinely interactive web content that reflects--and is a
product of--their communities.
My first multimedia project?
down the stream...
Drawing pictures was
never enough for me: what I really liked was making dioramas out of shoeboxes
and constructing three-dimensional objects that were part of a story. (Besides,
the smell of rubber cement and Magic Markers was pretty intense.) Here's
a little multimedia piece I made back when I was seven.
