I'm Maï, and I'm currently a grad student at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), exploring VR/AR/MR.
Before that, I was working as a film and VR producer, editor, sound designer, the occasional violinist, and video art maker.
I’m interested in telepresence and forming spaces and platforms that enable connection, representation, and agency for everyone.
I want to help foster a global community that grows increasingly aware of its diverse members through new tools, mediums, and stories.
