Industrial + Graphic Designer / Educator
"Design Thinker. Problem Solver. Co-Creator."
I am an Industrial Designer, Graphic Designer, and Educator. The common thread that binds my experiences is the desire to understand the stories of others.
My background in Education has provided me with the skills to work with diverse groups while empathizing on a one-on-one basis. Assessing through macro and micro lenses has enabled me to identify needs and deliver effective and efficient solutions.
As a Graphic Designer, I satiated my creative appetite from a curious perspective. After a few years in the field, I brought my experiences back to the classroom, and saw first hand how the design process transforms the way we think, teach, and learn.
With the desire to push beyond 2D thinking, I navigated 3D explorations while studying Industrial Design at the California College of the Arts. This is where I honed my skills in practicing Human Centered Design. My gravitation towards user experience has allowed me to transform the stories of others into tangible forms of products, services, and experiences.
