Currently an information architect for Marriott International, I am a graduate of the Information Architecture and Knowledge Management Master's program at Kent State University.
During my time in graduate school, I also worked as a graduate assistant at the Institute for CyberInformation at Kent State. After graduating, I worked as an assistant news editor/online at The Cincinnati Enquirer.
My interests include personalization, the paradox of the active user, social apps/media, mapping and wayfinding, and rich Internet applications. I have also done research in XML, newspaper editorial systems and new media.
