Hello and thanks for checking out my work!

I believe in approaching complex problems with playfulness and using curiosity and empathy to bring experiences to life. I love design in that the process is just as meaningful and engaging as the final product. 

Recently, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University studying Human Computer Interaction, Information Systems, and Photography. I am also the Lead UX Designer for CMU CS Academy, an online, interactive Computer Science course that aims make CS education accessible for all. Before that, I interned as a UX designer at Dick's Sporting Goods and photographed for Lunar Gala, Pittsburgh's largest fashion show.

On the side, I’m enthusiastic about film photography, NYT crosswords, and learning new recipes in the kitchen.

Please don't hesitate to reach out!
