Hi, I'm Elaine!
I have a passion for interactivity. I enjoy exploring and experimenting with play, keeping in mind that is is not bound to digital mediums. This has pushed me to expand design outside of games and look into physical computing, making and creating unordinary physical components that react in digital space and applying virtual and augmented reality technologies in unexpected ways.
I have a heart for young people and a desire to give back to the community. I'm always looking for ways to teach game development and programming, encouraging the pursuit of STEM fields. As a Latina and a woman, I find it so important to reach out to minorities and under-represented groups, letting them know that they are just as capable as anyone else to do and become whomever they want to be.
