About Me

I am a design researcher and service designer adapting human-centered design methodologies to uncover insights about people in context. My approach to design is grounded in research and systems thinking in order to connect innovation initiatives to organizational and community goals. I design across multiple scales to deliver collaborative solutions that address complex challenges.
