I'm a Seattle based product designer with interior architecture roots.
Over the last 2 years, I've designed experiences, digital products, and services for enterprises to startups, that improve wellness and work. I've designed experiences for B2C e-commerce, grocery retail, and health care products.
A little more about my background & work
I began my formal career in interior architecture at CEPT & UC DAAP, embedding myself in the practice of spatial and systems design. However, I quickly identified the gap in my design process that lacked research on users and market needs. I realized I was designing with a fixed mindset. My curiosity to learn about the user, technology and design processes that can help create human-centered products has been my driving force to pursue Design Management at SCAD.
Designing physical spaces has taught me to balance experiential quality with aesthetics while with design management I have developed a strong sense of empathy and strategy to solve complex problems. As a product designer, I get to do it all - shaping digital products at the intersection of usability and aesthetics to create meaningful experiences. I'm the happiest working for a diversity of perspectives and solving difficult human problems through design.

What do I do when I'm not solving problems
When I'm free, I may be hiking or watching a new Marvel/Disney movie, or playing board games. Some of my favorite board games are Catan, Istanbul, Azul, and Codenames. Like every other millennial, quarantine finally forced me to learn my favorite recipes, and now I spend the weekends hosting game night with home-cooked Indian food.
