One of my earliest memories is my first time sewing a throw pillow by myself. That small, poorly stuffed pillow introduced me to the world of design. From there I sketched clothing, objects, and places every day. I explored my surroundings and the problems I encountered through costume and fashion design until realizing my true inspiration, people. 

From there I attended Parsons School of Design, in New York, with a focus on product design and communication design. I dug deep into explorations in programming and web design– wanting to experience the complete process of ideation, creation, and iteration first hand. 

And for the last three years, I've been working at Button, a modern affiliate marketing startup which connects people to amazing brands. After joining the company when it was only the seven of us and watching it grow into a Series B company, I've learned how to see complex user experience problems with a business lens. Today, I'm focused on helping companies and people strive for a more connected and innovative world.
