About

Hello

I am a Seattle-based product designer with a background in industrial design.

In design I enjoy the creative process of finding opportunities in how we can create meaningful interactions. As I continue to explore design's relationship with people, I look forward to collaborating on projects that will challenge and inspire me to create thoughtful and humanistic experiences. 

For inspiration, having good conversations and traveling are my favorite things to do.
