MANIFESTO

I’m a product designer with 7 years of experience creating beautiful everyday experiences that help people make the most of their lives. I am drawn to digital products with a physical experience, be it hardware or real-life interactions. Currently, I’m thinking a lot about trust and safety in multi-sided platforms, but still hold a soft spot for behavior change through habit design and data visualization.
