Alexis Anais Avedisian is a writer and communications professional. She is the current Communications Manager of NYC Media Lab, a public-private partnership launched by the New York City Economic Development Corporation, Columbia University and New York University. NYC Media Lab merges events and prototyping projects to foster collaboration across a range of technology disciplines.
