I'm a user experience and product designer living in San Francisco. Creating clear, simple, and innovative experiences for users is my passion. My interest in this field was highly motivated by my love for science fiction - I've always been drawn to new technology and its impact on daily life.

Previously, I have worked in e-commerce, crafting solutions that connect consumers with the products they want and needs in the ways that make online shopping engaging and gratifying. I have also worked in consumer electronics, where I designed the next generation of mobile devices. My enthusiasm for my work lies in the creative process I follow to create each interactive design and then seeing my finished products being used in the world.
