I received my Master of Science in Information Systems from the George Washington University where I worked in the School of Business. Professionally, I have developed high touch marketing campaigns and marketing/technology solutions, and consulted for the Department of Treasury. I am a long time fan of DIY creation and the Maker Movement.

Make Mode is a digital design and fabrication studio specializing in 3D printing, laser cutting, and 3D design. Started in 2013, their goal is to help the creative ecosystem of New York City develop, prototype, and produce ideas for physical objects and products – from concept to concrete.

By using design software tools and digital manufacturing machines that allow for creation of highly custom objects, Make Mode aims to produce objects of greater intrinsic value both locally and on demand. Their mission is two-fold: reduce the cost of innovation & make more with less.
