Hi, I'm Celeste
The picture above shows second grade Celeste's hilariously accurate goals and predicitions for her adult self. Much like second grade Celeste, I still like doing designs and playing. And as predicted, I consider myself part artist and part teacher. (I'm still working on the gymnast and writer part).
My roots are in design as well as scientific visualization and communication. I completed my undergraduate degree in biological and pre-medical visualization and was on my way to becoming a medical animator or illustrator when I fell in love with the museum and informal education world. I always loved making things with my hands and swapping skills with people in my community. Creating exhibits and facilitating educational programs is the perfect marriage between my skills in visualizing and communicating complex scientific information and my desire to make things with and for my community.
This diverse background makes me uniquely positioned to work in many worlds and to serve as a bridge between different disciplines in order to create amazing experiences for a range of audiences. I'm an artist who understands the sciences, a designer who care about educational outcomes, and a creative thinker who tinkers with technology and fabrication to realize the visions of my team.
Now, as a graduate student in the Creative Technologies and Design program at the University of Colorado Boulder I'm taking great joy in developing my skills as a maker, technologist, and educator.
I'm always looking for opportunities to connect, learn, and design with others. Please get in contact with me if you think there's a way that we can collaborate, I'd love to hear
