I'm a product designer who likes the end-to-end process, from asking every question about the problem to teaching devs how to navigate Figma.

I enjoy understanding people, building design systems and showing people that hey you, too, can be a designer!

Outside of work and design, I like traveling, working out and just plainly takin' it easy. 🐢
