I’m a Bay Area local and have been working as a designer for over ten years. I’m currently focused on UX/UI service design and looking for opportunities to improve the quality and efficacy of public service delivery, particularly within communities most impacted by historical and present-day injustice.
I have degrees and work experience in graphic and product design. I’ve successfully designed, built, and shipped, a range of products including computers, lighting, and school buildings. I enjoy illustration and iconography and am a contributor to The Noun Project. I am also an active volunteer with OpenOakland and several racial justice organizations.
I show up with a balance of strong work ethic and respectful levity. I cultivate empathy for the values, needs, and perspectives of others. I’m passionate about helping people and want to apply my skills and experience in service of the public to solve problems at scale.
