MY STORY

I'm currently working on my master's degree at NYU ITP where my focus is designing experiences through a human-centric lens, particularly within accessibility and assistive technology. I see accessibility as the heart of what we do as designers since it’s not usable if it’s not accessible. I believe that the user is more of an expert than the designer and that technology assists people better when they take part in its design.

My background is in art and design with 10+ years' experience as an art director on interactive and digital campaigns. My work has received recognition from the May & Samuel Rudin ITP Scholarship, Lew & Edie Wasserman Scholarship, CLIOs, One Show, Effies, Webbys, FWA, Awwwards, and Cannes.

Travel is another way I’m able to research user behavior. I've observed and wandered, mostly solo, through 30 countries so far. You can check out my collection of travel recipes here.
