I design digital products and experiences.

Previously, I studied Interaction and Industrial Design at the University of Washington, where I got to work on projects with Microsoft’s Surface/Xbox team and with TEAGUE, a consultancy that designs user experiences and airplane interiors for Boeing.

This October, I’ll be joining ScreenCloud as a UX/UI Designer on the Studio team.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading profiles of interesting people, tinkering with mechanical keyboards, and getting opinionated about movies and TV shows (Bran Stark would make a horrible king). Sometimes in the morning, I pretend to meditate. Other times, I write about design and tech on my blog, steakscience.

Designing to help kids be more responsible with their time and help parents stay involved in their kid’s digital lives.

UW Bathrooms – An Exhibit

UW Bathrooms was a blog reviewing bathrooms on campus. It ran from 2012 to 2016 and inadvertently became a zeitgeist of the times. As a fan, I created a beautiful new site to archive the reviews, and enriched them with photos and maps.
