With an education in cognitive science and human-computer interaction, I pride myself on being a research-driven designer and team player who brings design-thinking to projects (and donuts to project meetings).
As a curious social scientist at heart, I’m intrigued by human behavior at an individual and societal level — a quality that suits my roles as an empathetic researcher and designer. I know that design, done properly, is half creative, and half scientific. Furthermore, I believe that human-centered design isn't just a method capable of creating enjoyable products, but also a mindset capable of making a more enjoyable life. When I’m not busy sketching wireframes or being the President of Design at UCSD
, you’ll find me in the kitchen cooking
, in the workshop crafting my next DIY project
, or at the beach pretending to be a surfer (dude).
