I love being on the cusp of a new discovery. With experience spanning ethnography, psychology, and user-centered methodologies, I embrace open-endedness and being on the ground. I have conducted fieldwork, evaluated concepts, performed usability testing, synthesized insights, and written countless reports. 

design

I believe in the power of human-centered design and iteration. My experiences span interaction design, service design, data visualization, visual design, and a myriad of skills in fine art. I'm always eager to learn new tools. Digitally and tangibly, I visualize, prototype, situate, and analyze.

I'm driven by the bigger picture and find myself continually reflecting and reassessing. I have worked on diverse teams in research and design contexts, facilitated strategic development for leaders of student service organizations, and was a part of CMU's Strategic Plan process.
