About

I am a detail oriented, intrinsically motivated, creatively driven, and naturally curious Product Designer & Creative Strategist.

As a product designer, I care deeply about discovering user problems and turning them into solutions that achieve business goals and emotionally resonate with users. I enjoy roles where design and strategy intersect.

As a human, I am happiest when I am creating -- whether that's working on digital products, composing electronic music, or working with clay.
