Cold Feet - Interactive Wedding Bouquet

What do you make? (please answer so I know you're human & not a bot)
Biometrics!

About Me:
I’m an Interaction Designer, recently graduated with a Masters of Interaction Design from Malmo Hogskola in Sweden and a Bachelors of “Interactive Art and Technology” (read: Interaction Design) from Simon Fraser University in Canada.
Currently, I reside in Copenhagen Denmark, with frequent trips…everywhere… to conferences, art festivals, or exhibits where I get the opportunity to meet people, share ideas, collaborate and do some amazing projects.
I work with Illutron, an interactive arts group based in Copenhagen, Live Art Installations, a performance group in Copenhagen, and run my own art/geek group with my partner, GeekPhysical! We’ve done some really cool stuff and I’d be happy to answer any questions you have!
