about

Hi there! I’m an experience/interaction designer that focuses on the intersection of technology and our environment. I love screens, but am more interested in the ways technology interjects (and how we invite it) into our homes, our neighborhoods, etc. and in turn how that shapes our perception of the environment in which we live. Above all I love making things, which is why on a normal day you’ll find me sketching, crafting, and occasionally coding (although I’m still learning!)
