Jess is currently a freelance experience designer and game designer in Cambridge, MA. Her work includes research, brainstorming, concept design, playtesting, presenting;  something different every day. She received her MFA in Interactive Media from the USC School of Cinematic Arts in 2007. Her graduate school work included game design, film production and interactive storytelling. Her Master’s thesis project, Fitting In, was an interactive history installation that gave visitors the physical experience of traveling back in time to 1860’s America using a replica woman’s period costume with corset and hoop skirt fitted w/digital sensors. While at USC, she also worked on a negotiation training game for the U.S. Army. For six years, Jessica worked as an Experience Designer for Big Buddha Baba Productions, a small interactive production company that designs museum exhibits, theme park attractions, and retail experiences. She was also the lead designer of Dig Quest: Israel, a free kids’ archaeology mobile app for the Israel Antiquities Authority available on iTunes and Google Play.
