I'm currently working on my master's at NYU ITP, where my focus is designing experiences through a user-centric lens that solve human problems, particularly within assistive technology and accessibility. I believe that technology assists people better when they take part in its design.
My background is in art and design with 10+ years' experience as a former 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.
Lessons from travel inform my user research. I've observed and wandered, mostly solo, through 30 countries so far. You can check out my collection of travel recipes here.
