Rebecca is the manager of MAKESHOP at Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. She gets paid to play, make, teach and learn with and from the visitors and staff. It's basically the best job ever.
In the past she has worked as a costume shop manager, digital media lab assistant, freelance graphic designer, teacher's assistant, motion graphics artist and, on one memorable occasion, as Fabio's hair stand-in.
She is passionate about creating tools and experiences that encourage communication, conversation and collaboration for educational and entertainment purposes, using combinations of physical and digital interfaces to create meaningful and immersive environments.
Rebecca holds a Bachelor of Arts from Bennington College and a Master of Entertainment Technology from Carnegie Mellon. She also got a high school diploma from an alternative public school in Alaska, but nobody's ever heard of that place.
