it's nice to meet you

I'm a freelance UX designer specializing in food, technology, and the circular economy. A few (quarantined) months ago, I finished up a one-year creative residency with Adobe, where I got to focus full-time on a passion project alongside eight other creators around the world. During my residency, I set out on a mission to reduce food waste by designing circular product solutions. Among creating digital products in the realm of food sharing, food access, and urban zero waste, I led talks and workshops at events including Seattle Interactive, AIGA, Adobe MAX, and DesignX.

Prior to my residency, I spent two years at Microsoft as a UX-focused Program Manager after graduating from Tufts University. At school, I studied a self-made major called Innovation & Design Thinking and took a semester off to work at IDEO on the future of food.

There, I had the opportunity to hone my craft and learn the value of design research and rapid prototyping from global design leaders.

In addition to freelancing, I've been exploring circularity as a participant in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s From Linear to Circular Programme. I've also been working on a product venture, Farewell, aimed at increasing compost participation in NYC.

Outside of my day job, I enjoy cooking, woodworking, or hiking in search of Chanterelle mushrooms, a Pacific Northwest dream of mine. When I'm not quarantining, you can find me visiting family where I grew up in New York or hosting a gathering with friends for a home cooked meal. At my core is a love for bringing people together through design and food, and building community.
