To me, the world is a design canvas with problems that inspire me and solutions that help me thrive.

I am passionate about solving complex problems to help people live a delightful life and enjoy experimenting with ideas through code. I am experienced in creating end-to-end product experiences from discovering needs to designing interfaces to testing them for usability. Previously, I designed and delivered products for startups in the fields of Educational Technology, Healthcare, and Design Consulting.
