I know, I know...mobile first. But I'm having too much fun playing on Webflow right now so please check out my website on a desktop!


hi, i'm kelsey.

I’m a designer/researcher/maker who loves making products that enable creation and communication. I believe design should be democratic, hopeful, and a little bit of a winding path (which you can see in this website). When I’m not working, you’ll find me exploring my neighborhood through sketching, working with my hands, or going on long walks and pondering the universe with my pup, Maisie.

a small e-commerce business

urban interaction design

a speculative research project that
re-imagines IoT products

...and here's some
fun explorations.

Design, research, and strategy are my specialties. I have almost a decade of design experience, cutting my teeth in start-up environments where I cultivated an all-hands-on-deck attitude (where no task was too small) that I still bring to every project to this day.

If you have any questions about the work I do or feel like I would be a good fit for a project, don’t hesitate to contact me. 

Thanks! I'll get back to you soon.
