Co-Founder, Vice President
Joey Stein, co-founder and vice president of Moey Inc., is devoted to finding creative technical solutions that stitch together art, science, technology, design and education.
Interested in reaching others via his own excitement for the world, his work often includes inventive environmental and sculptural interactives that both educate and carve a new landscape in the visitor experience. Joey's talents range from hardware design and programming, to astronomy and natural history. Concerned with creating new forms of social experience and expectation, his projects expand the vocabulary of what is interactive and educational. Most notably, he brings a technical and artistic vision to scientific expression.
Joey's innovative approach informed many of the exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History, where he held the position of Embedded Interaction Designer for six years. He taught the Masters course in Physical Computing at New York University and periodically lectures at Harvard Graduate School of Design, New York University and Parsons School of Design. In 2003 he co-founded Moey Inc. to develop installations and custom technical pieces for corporations, museums, scientific research and artists.
He has a BA from Georgetown University and a Masters degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU.
Director of Media Production
Stephanie has a sketchbook filled with pictures, phrases, and thoughts... basically an ever-growing collection of ideas. Sometimes the pages are relevant to her work; sometimes they're not. But Stephanie is quick to point out that every one of them makes her a better problem solver.
"I feel that Moey is an environment where creative people not only hone their technical skills and expect to be challenged, but stretch their muscles in more unpredictable ways," she says.
Stephanie doesn't take the idea of client partnership lightly. She emphasizes it just as strongly as she reveres artistic expression. She relates, "I heard a great definition of the difference between design and art: 'Design answers someone else's questions, art answer your own.' We always make sure we're answering the clients' questions, as well as our own. That's my measure of any project's success."
Before her move to Moey Inc., Stephanie served as Director of Broadcast Media with Surdell & Partners Advertising Agency in California. While there, she developed and produced seasonal television and radio commercial campaigns for Gottschalks department stores. She was able to raise the creative bar by delivering creative solutions to cost prohibitive ideas and budgets. Her work has been recognized with both Telly and Addy awards.
Stephanie received a BFA in Motion Picture and Television studies from Academy of Art University, San Francisco.

Dierdre D. Dixon
D caught the programming bug at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program in the mid 1990s while forcing applications like Hypercard and Director to do her bidding. She cut her programming teeth at the American Museum of Natural History, coding a wide variety of exhibits that employed physical interfaces inviting interaction beyond the mouse and keyboard.
Many years and many languages later, she continues to enjoy the challenge of melding media, technology, and algorithms into engaging products and immersive experiences. D's work has appeared at The Old Stone House, Museum of Math, Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, New York Hall Of Science, Children's Museum of Manhattan, and the Children's Museum of Houston, and several pieces survive in permanent halls at the American Museum of Natural History. D holds BA in Communication Studies from UCLA, a Masters degree from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program and an MS in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.
