who am i?
I am an experience designer with a love for robots and caffeine! I go by many names in the digital world... caffeinefueledrobot, trololol, necromaida, and ciaramichelle. IRL (in real life), I am Ciara Taylor. I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in Designed Objects where I focused my design efforts on user interaction and social behavior in online gaming. I have always had one foot in the gaming world and the other in the design world. I utilize my hybrid role to research and design new ways to create community engagement through elements of play. What started as a childhood love for video games, and a creative flare for design has greatly informed the work I do.
