What I do:
What I believe:
Design has two sides
Visual artifacts that use
elegance to please the eye.
Critical thinking and testing
as a means to solve problems.
Great visual design can solve problems but to
truly make change, systems thinking precedes
No challenge, no design:
Design solves problems through a mix of creativity and empathy
Some design challenges I’ve worked on
How do you design events and live experiences that inspire students across campus?
How do you design packaging that encourages smart and sustainable shopping choices?
How do you design an online education platform that both delights users and causes real change in their lives?
How do you re-design an eCommerce user flow to double conversions and increase average cart size?
What I also believe:
Leading teams and managing projects are essential parts of the designer’s toolbox
