user research and design strategy
No action we take is devoid of hopes, fears, or worries. From the stress of saving enough for retirement to the challenge of remembering a daily medication, I have been able to delve into the psyche behind decisions both big and small. Into the “why” behind our actions and motivations.
I have worked for startups, design firms, and nonprofits, but always my work has focused on understanding that why and then designing a solution that makes a concrete improvement in people’s lives. As a researcher and design strategist, I bring innate curiosity, deep listening, and systems thinking to every project.
