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.
I believe designers should always be learning and improving. My design background has been very American and problem-solving-oriented. To gain a different perspective, I interned at STUDIO 150, which has a distinct European approach. There, I worked on me.jai, a website for the indie music streaming service, Fungjai.
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.
