I’m a strategic designer with big dreams about creating change. I’m happiest with a large cup of coffee, a new audiobook, and a team of creative collaborators.
work / HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN x SYSTEMS THINKING
I pair a human-centered approach with systems thinking to understand complex challenges and design products, services, and experiences that move us closer to a world of equal opportunity. see my work.
community / DESIGNERS OF TOMORROW
I'm lucky to be a member of Designers of Tomorrow - our small community of designers from non-design backgrounds. We’re committed to designing solutions for a better tomorrow, and bringing new perspectives to the work of change. We host workshops, keep each other accountable, and share lessons from our work. join us.
I also help aspiring changemakers start imagining, and working toward their own journeys of change. If you’re planning a career change, looking to build new skills, or trying to bring more empathy and creativity to your current work, I would love to help! let's chat.
fun / BOLD EXPERIMENTS
Sometimes, I do crazy experiments that challenge social norms. One time, I convinced strangers to quit their jobs and spend 12 months working and living with me, in an unfamiliar country, 7000 miles from home. Another time, I filled the hallways at our university with playful, life-size installations (think: a giant piano floor). I also designed my own master's program, and worked as roadside tea stall owner in rural India for an entire week. play with me.
