I care deeply about crafting forward-thinking design solutions without the intrusive or
prescriptive qualities that demand your attention elsewhere. I am influenced by aspects of play, craftsmanship,
and inspiring curiosity when crafting experiences for others, and actively try to embody those traits in myself.
I received my BFA for Interaction Design in 2018 at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. During my time at CCA, I crafted many unique experiences for others, ranging from the the elegant and poetic speculative mobility futures with Ford Motors, to the practicality of the future of student loan payments with Visa. In the summer of 2017 I interned as an Experience Designer at the consumer product firm fuseproject, where I worked on the FORME Life smart home fitness device, and VR product demo galleries for their on-the-road product showcases.
In the summer of 2018 I collaborated on a design sprint with IDEO CoLab as well as designed for the consumer lending company Blend as their first product design intern. Here, I redesigned the new-hire onboarding experience, BlendU, with the help of the Organization Effectiveness team. In the summer of 2019 I joined Reduct.Video as an "all-hats" designer, helping to define a preliminary design system for their product, as well as pitch decks and branding for their prospective funding rounds. My most recent work has been for Cisco's Collaboration Design team, working on their Cloud Connected Unified Communications platform, and other telecommunication products for workplace productivity.
In my free time I apprentice at a clay studio, creating functional ceramic ware for friends who didn't ask for them. I'm a professional .jpg and .mp3 consumer, and my hobbies involve taking up new hobbies.
I'm currently looking for new opportunities; feel free to reach out if you think I could be a good fit for your team.
