Emily Schooley

I'm a designer and an engineer focused on creating immersive and wonderful experiences.


To create solutions that solve real problems.
To make strange the things we take for granted.
To see the world from your point of view.
To bring a sense of wonder to everything I do.
To explore the turtles we have stacked upon each other.

To use my whole self to bring joy and a sense of wonder to the world and its people.


I want to live in a world where technology works with us, not against us; where institutions work for everyone, not the privileged few; where society values our complexity instead of avoiding it.
