Hi there!

I’m a designer based in Seattle, WA.

I design physical and digital products and experiences.

In my design work, I love to approach new topics, learn as much as I can, and combine curiosity and observation to design something delightful.

In my spare time, I enjoy tinkering with mechanical keyboards and reading profiles of interesting people.

Projects

Conceptual project exploring how form and interface can help kids be more responsible with their time and help parents be more involved in their kid’s digital lives.

Dog owners are scared to leave the house for too long, limitting their work and social opportunities. We design devices that help take care of dogs so their owners can be more productive and achieve more.

Designing a space tourism experience that reduces conflict among passengers.

Cooking is fun but getting started can be intimidating and stressful. Can we design something to make that experience better?

Exploring how we can make AR interactions more tangible and spatial using music as a case study.
