I'm a design leader working hard to improve peoples' lives, from bettering individual experiences to promoting collective actions that benefit society. 

I've spent the last few years applying design to hard, systemic challenges at a global scale, such as civic engagement, financial inclusion and philanthropy. I've played many critical roles in product development: sole designer instrumental in bringing 0-to-1 projects to life; design lead shaping product vision and guiding strategy; team leader empowering designers and building culture. 

I get excited by the delight of daily experiences, selecting just the right cup for my coffee and plating food artfully, not for the camera, but for the moment. I'm concerned about the intricate problems I see our communities face. Right now I'm diving deep into understanding the facets of the homelessness issue in the Bay Area and I'm optimistic that design can help to address it.
