MY BACKGROUND

I'm a Brooklyn-bred creative who finds joy in spending long afternoons in art museums, in storytelling through photography, and by designing experiences that captivate users. I strive to create meaningful and memorable connections between people and digital mediums through decision-making rooted in empathy and strategy. I work with a design process rooted in data-driven research and ethnographic approaches.

I'm in my last year at Georgia Tech where I study Computational Media with a minor in Industrial Design. My university experience has been an amalgamation of computer science, digital media, and design, shaping my interdisciplinary background. Recently, I was a KPCB Fellow at DoorDash dabbling in design and front-end web technologies.

Fun facts that I normally throw out in icebreakers:

  • I was able to travel to 11 cities last year (most without an expense out of my own pocket).
  • Photos I've taken garner surprisingly exciting attention every once in a while. Some cool places where my images have landed:
    • As a featured submission on Unsplash with 500k+ views and 3k+ downloads. (Apparently more people have seen my work than the summit of Mt. Everest?!)
    • In a mobile gallery truck where prints were available for purchase and 100% of profits were donated directly to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
    • On a viral Buzzfeed article garnering over a million views.
  • I'm spending the first half of my senior year (and 21st birthday) in Copenhagen, Denmark this fall semester through an exchange program.

I love when people reach out - don't shy away from the button below whether it's to chat over brunch, discuss potential opportunities, or just a simple hello! 😊👇🏼
