I’m a generalist digital product designer. I like seeing the whole process; from definition to research to detailed design to seeing an actual screen in somebody’s hand.
I graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 2016 with a triple major in Human-Computer Interaction, Information Systems, and Creative Writing.
Most recently I’ve worked at Axios, where I designed for our public-facing website, mobile app, and reporter-facing tools. I’ve also been at a design consultancy, where I worked on projects for JP Morgan Chase and American Express, and helped design (and even build) tools to help our designers communicate with their clients. I’ve also interned at a payments startup, Venmo, and led design at a crowdsourced educational media startup, Expii.
As a designer I’m most at home on UX focused projects. I love product definition, user research, wireframing, and the kind of design problems that require you to make a spreadsheet. I also value seeing my work through to completion, and can deliver on high-fidelity visual design.
One of my favorite parts of the job is working closely with engineers. I have enough software engineering background to effectively communicate, and actually enjoy reworking designs so that they can be built quickly and robustly.
I’m not signed up for marathons of 5ks or anything competitive. I do it for the endorphins and the meditative exercise.
When I’m not running, I like rowing machines and kettlebells.
Mostly short fiction, especially about privilege, queer dating, and the icky parts of love.
I’ve taken classes with Sackett Street Writers Workshop and Catapult, and am part of a workshopping group that meets at my apartment.
