About Me

I'm a Product Designer and a Frontend Engineer

I've always been interested in intersections between disciplines, which is why I only have 'and' degrees: MS Human Centered Design and Engineering, BA Behavioral Science and Psychology.

As a virtue of my background I'm able to work fluidly across disciplines and mindsets, bringing a multi-faceted approach to the design and development of products and experiences.

In my free time, I climb mountains, jump out of airplanes, travel the world, play guitar, and make digital art.

I like new people and interesting conversations, and I'm always happy to exchange ideas, talk about new opportunities, or just meet a cool human.
