researcher & designer


I am an interaction designer and sometimes researcher at IDEO. I focus on human centered design and have worked on a range of projects from mobile UI to educational toolkits to interactive environments, with a particular affinity for work that fosters social change. 


Prior to IDEO, I worked at other great places like frog designExperience Music Project & Studio Matthews

To your right a few projects I worked on as a student at the University of Washington now quite a few years ago. More recent projects include the Community Action Toolkit - an open source guide to design thinking - featured in Fast Company.

Work has taken me from St. Louis to Bangladesh and many places in between. I enjoy learning about new cultures and people, and find that the most engaging design solutions are the ones that are informed by real experiences.
