At University College London's IOE|CCM|ICN Knowledge Lab & Developmental Diversity Lab and the Cognition Emotion and Education Lab (CEE) within the Centre for Attention Learning and Memory (CALM) at the Medical Research Council’s Cognition & Brain Sciences Unit at University of Cambridge (CBU), I research wearable interventions for neurotypical and autistic individuals. My practice is sought after, referred to, and provides an international community with deliverables and services. 

As a parent of an autistic teenager, my nearly twenty years of personal experience and advocacy provide me with a decidedly unique and inclusive perspective. I am grateful to be the recipient of the PPI INNOVATION GRANT: a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in conjunction with a partnership between UCL, University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre and the NHS Foundation Trust (reference: BRC743/DR/104990) for PPI on Adaptive Wearable Appropriateness as an Autistic Intervention Project.

Amazon Best-Selling Author/Lecturer/Mentor
Creator of print, electronic & Audible books and Udemy.com courses. I lecture and mentor undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral protégés. I published 50+ technical articles and 700+ productions for major, independent, and boutique concerns.

GRAMMY Producer & Engineer
As a sustaining member of The GRAMMYs​​​​®, Broadcast Music International®, Audio Engineering Society®, American Federation of Musicians®, and Recording Industry Association of America®, I work for A-List entertainers including Jeff Berlin, Russ Freeman, The Rippingtons, and Eric Marienthal. My works were recorded and performed by Chick Corea, Peter Erskine, and Russell Ferrante. I produced two solo recordings for pediatric research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

.com Entrepreneur
I co-founded and was President of GATE International-the fastest growing Internet Consultancy and Digital Marketing Firm in the southeastern US. We provided Internet, print, TV & radio deliverables on three continents to organizations like DirecTV, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, and Blockbuster Video. ​​​​​

Music Industrialist and Publisher
I honed my acumen at upper-level management for companies like Otari of Japan, NEOTEK of Chicago, and REP and S&VC Magazines of New York. I served clients like Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Lindsey Buckingham, Telarc, 3M, SONY and myriad organizations. I was also a recording artist, producer, engineer and performer.

Research Summary

I am a passionately devoted scientist & PhD candidate within the University College London's Institute of Education & Culture, Communication & Media Department's Knowledge Lab and at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience's Developmental Diversity Lab & Cognition Emotion and Education Lab (CEE) within the Centre for Attention Learning and Memory (CALM) at the Medical Research Council’s Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at University of Cambridge (CBU).

Additionally, I am fortunate to be a GRAMMY™ producer/engineer, and Amazon™, Audible™ and Udemy™ best selling author. My research supports my creation of wearable assistive feedback devices for neurodiverse & neurotypical populations. 

My research includes harvesting global impact through interdisciplinary, socially engaged, and relevant scholarship and praxis.
