Zoe grew up an artist and crafter with a love of functionality. She spent almost a decade working as a model maker and presentation designer for some of NYC’s best architecture firms, before pursuing her interest in emerging technology and rapid prototyping. From there, she transitioned into interactive design and most recently graduated from a master’s program at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication program where engineer/artists are always busy thinking up creative ways to push the boundaries of technology. In addition to her design and tech career Zoe was also a skater for Gotham Girls Roller Derby, a pastry chef, and co-founded the jewelry company Lock&Spoon. ‘Handled’ is a line of assistive kitchen tools to empower differently-​abled users to have better access to the pleasure of cooking.
