Keynote Speaker

Myles deBastion is an artistic director, musician and creative-altruist who develops technology and art installations that enable sound to be experiences as light and vibration. His search for ways to bridge his passion for music with his Deaf identity led him to found CymaSpace, a nonprofit that facilitates arts and cultural events that are inclusive of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing.

What inspired you to seek a career in STEAM?

I enjoy problem solving and exploring the intersection of different disciplines. I use science to inspire my art, then I see what technology I can use to engineer my ideas and usually I have to learn a little math along the way!

Why do you hope students participate in the STEAM Career Showcase?

STEAM careers can be really regarding. You get to learn how the world works from multiple points of view, which can help us understand the perspectives of people and cultures who are different to us.
