Shoe Design Lab

For Berkeley Carroll’s 2018 STEAM Fair, I hosted Shoe Design Lab in my classroom. Shoe Design Lab is an immersive experience for young adults and children on the ideation, design and prototyping of sneakers. It was created by LAMA SIX, a Brooklyn-based creative studio. I collaborated with LAMA SIX in providing direction and feedback on the activity, as well as hosted the activity and provided hands-on support during the event.

The young attendees and parents were both very excited to participate in this activity, which combined experimentation, design thinking and applied graphic design.

Some of the paper prototypes designed by participants.

Wonder film Q&A with R.J. Palacio


It was such an honor to host the Q&A with R.J. Palacio at this special premiere of Wonder in Brooklyn. I am a huge fan of the book, as it is such a powerful and humanizing work, and it was a delight to see the film and facilitate the session with R.J. Palacio afterwards. The film is an excellent representation of the story and themes in the book. I highly encourage you read the book and see the film!
