about

Iā€™m a Product Designer based out of San Francisco, currently consulting with startups and working on my own projects.

Most recently, I was a designer at Coursera helping revamp the core learning platform--projects which led to a doubling in course completion rates. Previously, I've launched a 1,000,000+ downloaded iOS app with Social Print Studio and spent a summer designing dev tools at Microsoft.

I believe community is core to everything we do and over the years I've helped found the first design org at UCSD--Design.UCSD , been a part of DesignerFund's Bridge program and was a finalist in the IxDA's Student Design Challenge. I currently mentor with Designlab and am building community for new designers entering the field--you can check it out at Road to UX.

Formative years include a stint doing creative at an ad agency, studying and teaching Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at UC San Diego and forays into academia.

Non-work tidbits: I enjoy cycling šŸš“šŸ¼ , snowboarding šŸ‚, hip-hop (and R&B) šŸŽµ, interior decorating šŸ›‹ and pho šŸœ
