Marissa is currently pursuing a Masters in Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon University's Entertainment Technology Center. She is studying at the ETC to learn to craft and implement digital art and content for a variety of media.
At the University of Louisville, Marissa studied Biology and minored in Studio Art. Following graduation, she worked for two years in the Visitor Experience Department at the Kentucky Science Center. While working in the Science Center, Marissa constructed cardboard exhibits for early childhood guests and presented activities on a variety of science subjects for audiences of all ages. She also developed programming curricula, organized program logistics for clients and staff, and facilitated hands-on science experiences at schools and community centers around the state.
Ultimately, Marissa hopes to apply what she learns at the ETC toward developing digital resources for education.
