*A human and a designer, you say?
Of course I’m a human, isn’t that rather obvious? But then why am I calling out this particular aspect of myself? Because design problems are human problems. When solving problems for people, starting with people just makes sense.
I’ve worked in labs style environments and in startups, which means thinking big, building small prototypes, refining through implementation, and always focusing on the people the product is being built for. The core of my skillset lies in UI and UX design with a love of designing for positive behavioral change and a focus on products built for good.
I am currently the Lead Designer for Bright Funds. I gather insights through user feedback, develop product ideas, build prototypes to test and gather feedback on features, and design our web app and marketing site.
Previously, I was a designer at Hattery Labs. With a focus on user-centered design, I helped build products for the healthcare, education, and nonprofit spheres.
If you were to ask me what design is in one sentence, I would say it’s using deep empathy to create experiences that hopefully better lives along the way.
