My lifelong passion for helping others drove me to first become an engineer, then a marketing strategist, and now a multidisciplinary designer. I believe that design has the ability to facilitate connection, and that connection often has the power to foster compassion. I enjoy using design to connect individuals to new experiences, resources, and ideas. I am most interested in designing products that simplify people’s lives, and designing stories that challenge people’s perspectives. I am graduating this spring, and I am currently seeking both full-time and freelance job opportunities.
