PHILOSPHY
I Believe design is..

a friend,

a bridge,

a superpower,

Design doesn’t just know you but gets you. In moments of frustration, Design actively seeks out solutions that uniquely serve your struggle. I’m a firm advocate for sensitivity and empathy (in both life and design!), and center my work around a deep understanding of people. 

Design happens in conversation with others! I’m always seeking opportunities in intersectionality: I love learning from designers and non-designers alike to better inform my craft and my ability as a collaborator.

- and with great power, comes great responsibility. Design is an instrument of influence that must be wielded with intention. I think deeply about what I want my design to achieve and only until it delivers upon its purpose do I sign my work.
