About me

Hello world!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved gadgets.

Now, I’m studying Industrial Design and Interaction Design at the University of Washington.

After this, I’ll be working at the intersection of these two fields and designing interactive objects.

In my spare time, I blog about design, tech, and other topics that I find interesting.
