I'm a recent graduate of Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT who's passionate about design. My greatest interests lie in UI/UX, product, and critical approaches to design processes.
Outside of academics, I was a studio assistant in our engineering lab, an editor of our campus music blog, and a Patricelli Social Entrepreneurship Fellow. Upon graduation, I received the highest honors awarded at Wesleyan for my work on my thesis, Designing Toward Mutual Aid: Critical Feminist Methodologies for Creating New Tech.
I currently live in New York City and work as a full-time product designer at Brex.
ABOUT MY MAJOR
I had the unique opportunity to design my own major, and chose to create a holistic program in Interaction Design. My program focused on practice as well as theory, where I placed the ethics of technology at the forefront. My goal is to adopt an approach to design that addresses pressing needs in the world with outcomes that uplift, not oppress.
My courses broke down into three categories: Aesthetic Design (studio art, design theory); Technology (computer science, engineering); and the Human Experience (sociology, anthropology, psychology).
I'm also have a minor in Integrated Design, Engineering, and Applied Science (IDEAS).
