Jessy Escobedo is an interdisciplinary design strategist combining spatial computing, mobile interfaces, and social fiction as accessible and engaging media to co-creating visualizations and dialogue about urban futures with a new generation of low-income immigrant communities. Her latest project, Plannar, is a shared AR social network that privileges the points of view of long-term residents of Chinatown through the placing and liking of virtual objects around the neighborhood. She is a current MFA candidate in ArtCenter College of Design’s Media Design Practices department, holds a B.S. in Architectural Studies from the University of Southern California, and is currently based in Los Angeles, CA.

Jessy is a Mexican immigrant and believes non-citizens should have rights to the city, tech should promote wellness, and that you should watch Adam Curtis' 3-hour long documentary 'Hypernormalisation' because it's brilliant.

Feel free to drop her a line and say hi :)
