creating experiences through play

ABOUT

About

I create experiences through the lens of play, bridging the gap of design, engineering, and business, and leveraging technology to enhance people’s well-being.

I am a storyteller who seeks to identify pivotal moments for the audience with a consumer-centric approach to product and experience design, resulting in the most meaningful engagement with the end user.

I design with passion and empathy through an iterative process of need-finding and problem-solving.

I am currently looking for a full-time opportunity that allows me to explore more in UX Design and Product Strategy. Shoot me an email if you have an opportunity that you think I would be a good fit or if you would like to collaborate.
