About Me

Hi, I’m Stu. I’m an exploratory UX Designer.

I’m currently pursuing a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, but soon I hope to put my nerd powers to work designing AI-driven products and services. Though my original background is in Cognitive Science, these days I’m more interested in helping minds work better together: human-and-human, human-and-agent, and everything in between.

When I’m not thinking about robots, I like to spend time on the yoga mat or making music with friends. Oh, and getting to know folks like you! Love that.

If you feel the same way, drop me a message in the contact below and I’ll get back to you soon!
