Sarah received her Masters of Graphic Design from North Carolina State University where she concentrated on the study of interactive media. She worked for several years at WGBH, Boston’s public television station, where she was a Senior Designer in the Interactive Department. Her current work focuses on the development of mobile platforms designed to interpret sites of cultural heritage leading to research partnerships with The National Park Service, The US Holocaust Museum, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Her work has been presented at AIGA Design Education conferences, CUMULUS, The Norwegian Design Research Network (NORDES), The Museum Computer Network (MCN) and published in Visible Language. In 2012/13 she was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Oslo, Norway, researching the design of educational technologies in relation to learning theory. In the summer of 2016 she will lead a study abroad program to Oslo to work with the Norwegian National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design. Her classes focus on interaction design, information design, and research methodologies.
Design allows me to explore a vast array of subject matter and work with experts from a variety of disciplines. At the close of each project I feel as if I have earned an honorary degree in that field of study.
