About

I'm a thoughtful product designer with over seven years of experience. I have worked at companies ranging from a seed-stage VC backed company, a mature start-up,  500+ person organization to a design studio.

I approach problems with a comprehensive lens and value championing for craft and visual expression in products with complex workflows.

When I'm not mapping out flows or pushing pixels while listening to bass-heavy beats, you can find me training at Rittisak Muay Thai, having outbursts of random strong opinions, and admiring beautiful skies in places all over the world.
