I’m a digital product designer who creates quality product experiences rooted in design research and strategic thinking. I’ve worked a solid 5 years in the industry with a background designing educational products at Sally Ride Science, enterprise software consulting at Konrad+King, and swiftly evolving designs at startups. My approach is informed by the UC San Diego Cognitive Science – HCI program and as a 2015 fellow of the Startup Leadership Program.
I was raised in a mixed race, multicultural household which I think has propelled my curiosity to understand the many different people out there. As a kid I spent hours coddling my Tamagotchi, wreaking havoc on my Sims and carefully reading ASCII art decorated strategy guides. Somehow I think those experiences grew up together and helped me find a profession in UX I really love. Nowadays I make a conscious effort to forego heavy screen time by hiking steep ground, traveling, taming ocean waves and trying new things (most recently: fly diving).
I like meeting good people – say hi!
