I believe in an iterative approach to problem solving, driven by user research, and that thoughtful design can have a positive social impact.

I came to UX design from an academic background in the humanities, and I bring a practical, user-focused approach to all of my projects.

Before coming to grad school at the University of Michigan I worked in radio and in art museums, and I received my B.A. in Global Studies with a minor in photography from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013.

I am currently:

  • conducting UX research to develop next-gen employment tools,
  • exploring agile development methodologies as they apply to managing web development projects,
  • combining my passions for design and data in a personal informatics project focused on sustainability,
  • building my skills in hardware prototyping in a UX capstone course
