Hello!

Work. Purpose. Love.

Uplift others.  

Love yourself. Treat yourself kindly. Treat others kindly, if you’re not doing this already. Make it your practice. 

Smile at strangers, they might smile back.

You never know; that’s life. Think about that.

Please have fun. 

Be the light in the world… your world, in other('s) worlds, virtual worlds… go forth and learn, explore, love, be kind. 

Nice is not the same as kind.  

We’re heading for some strange and beautiful times.

Acquiring new skills through research and problem-solving rank high on Selena’s list of favorite activities. Her research efforts focus on the social,  economic, and ethical impacts of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) analytics, virtual reality (VR), an augmented reality (AR). As we continue to develop technologies that move us into ever-expanding human machine economy, enhancing our lives in industry and society, it’s imperative that we address the problems of today and not empower them more by blindly building them into the infrastructures of our future.
 

We truly live in an exciting and wonderful time in human history.
