I'm Maï, and I'm currently a grad student at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), exploring VR/AR/MR. Prior to attending, I worked as a film producer, commercial and video editor, sound designer, and rusty violinist.
I’m interested in forming connected spaces and virtual platforms that enable inclusive communication and representation. I want to help foster a global community that grows increasingly aware of its diverse members through new ways of interacting with each other as well as our physical and virtual surroundings.
