About me

View Resumé

I approach both design and life with curiosity, enthusiasm, and intention.

I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Information Science, specializing in UX Design.

My past experiences at TrustRadius, frog, and PwC have allowed me to engage with multiple facets of the design journey, ranging from user interviews and data analysis to wireframing and prototyping in Figma. This exposure gives me an appreciation of the creative process that I bring into my own to craft experiences that push boundaries.

Previously, I co-directed Shift Creator Space, a live-in maker space and playground for builders, and led the Design Committee at Kappa Theta Pi.

After hours, I tinker on side projects. As a fan of social experiments, I've created an interpersonal card game called p.o.v. I've also played around with Candles & Arduinos, and 3D modeling, like a Tile Piece that represents changes in ocean tides.

In my free time, catch me going on long bike rides, making cold process soap, or traveling to a new city on my bucket list. Fun fact, I was also a competitive figure skater ⛸️ for over 12 years!
