From 1979-1982, in an exceptional and daring experiment, Moore traveled throughout the USA and Canada disguised as women more than eighty years of age. With her body altered to simulate the normal sensory changes associated with aging, she was able to respond to people, products and environments as an elder.

Her broad range of experience includes Research, Product Development and Design, Environmental Design, Package Design, Transportation Design, Market Analysis and Product Positioning.

Moore holds undergraduate degrees in Industrial, Environmental; Communication Design from the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduate degrees in Psychology & Counseling and Gerontology from Columbia University; Completion of Advanced Studies in Biomechanics at New York University’s Medical School.

Moore is a frequent international lecturer, media guest, author of numerous articles; the book DISGUISED and an Adjunct Professor of Industrial Design at Arizona State University.

ABC World News featured Moore as one of 50 Americans defining the new millennium.
