About me. I am an interdisciplinary designer with a passion for live theatre, creative writing, and helping people explore their creative side. I am always looking for new ways to combine my love of technology with the fine arts. When completing my masters of science, my research focused on designing technology for improvised theatre based on what improvisers use already in their practice. My research led me to publish multiple research papers and present my work at different conferences around the world. My design and communication skills are exemplified by my interdisciplinary work and I believe these skills can apply to many design-oriented positions.
What I’m doing. I am currently working on my own personal blog, Renee Claire Blog, through Patreon. I am applying my user-experience design skills to create and promote my work through social media. I consider my brand, my audience, and my own passion for writing when creating content.
What I’ve done. I have completed a masters of science in computational media design at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Lora Oehlberg (computer science department) and April Viczko (drama department). I completed my bachelor of science in computer science at the University of Calgary in 2017. My bachelor of science degree includes a concentration in computer graphics and a minor in visual studies and art history. My multitasking skills were showcased by my work as a Starbucks barista throughout my bachelor degree and my volunteer work teaching young people at the Calgary Public Library throughout my MSc degree.
