I am a systems thinking driven designer and storyteller who is passionate about working on wicked and difficult problems. My process and work is based in user-centered design, empathy, clarity, and sense-making. I am particularly interested in medical, civic, service and equitable innovation.
Prior to design, I spent 6 years working in sustainability, urban planning, academia and museums, and approach design with a planning, policy, environmental and governance lens.
I am a candidate in MFA Products of Design at the School of Visual Arts, a multidisciplinary program that intersects physical products, digital products, experience design, service design, and entrepreneurship with systems thinking and strategy. My thesis looks at how the redesign of rape kits could address responses to sexual assault.
I received a MLA in Sustainable Management from Harvard University in 2016 with a focus in policy and business. My thesis work there investigated how sustainable design and policy could improve current business practices to be more efficient, responsible, and innovative by creating a proposal for a sustainable laundromat-cafe-bar.
When I’m not designing, I’m searching for the city’s best ice cream cone.
