Hi there! I'm a designer based out of Oakland, CA. For the last eight years, I've worked on interaction, web, and service design projects. I am always seeking to learn and, hopefully, create things along the way that make the world a better place.
Currently, I work at a non-profit called Code for America. In order to understand poverty in America, we talk to people going through hard times and the social workers who help them. When we can, we pursue opportunities to make their lives a little easier.
I am endlessly intrigued by the creative process, whether it is in the making of chairs, museum exhibits, new technology, typefaces, or public services. Often, I find that it is between those spaces where the magic happens.
Previously, I worked at a place called Inkling. We were a talented group of dreamers hoping to make education more engaging through interactive digital books. I worked on hundreds of titles from Campbell's Biology to Frommer's Travel Guides.
Brown University taught me about the world. RISD taught me about design.
When I’m not working, I like to be in nature. I am grateful to have had the chance to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail, traverse the Sierra High Route, and work on a few farms in Patagonia.
If you’d like to get in touch, shoot me an email. I’m not really on social media these days :)
