I’m a Product Designer with a multidisciplinary design background and a passion for bridging tech and social impact through design.

My path toward product design began with my minor at UC Berkeley, Global Poverty and Practice, where I worked on designing solutions to social inequality with a human-centered approach. After college, I expanded my design palette to include photography, graphic design, and tabletop game design.

My curiosity in product design was sparked when a partnership between Literacy Lab and Google gave me access to Google-led workshops about their design methodologies. I was hooked. I soon transitioned from graphic design into a product design-focused role, which was highlighted by leading the redesign of a nylon bag for literacy programs and being a researcher and designer on a project to create an online parent platform.

Beyond my experience at Literacy Lab, I have honed my practice through hundreds of hours of self-directed study via online courses, in-person workshops and events, books, articles, and personal projects.
