I explore interaction and human-centered design at Carnegie Mellon University. I practice Product design skills such as sketching ideas, developing concepts, executing and crafting ideas to understand how people are affected by the built world. I constantly try to push past a single design discipline to consider designing services, social innovation, and a more sustainable future. My further academic interests include Human Computer Interaction and Integrative Design, Arts, & Technology.
Born and raised in the Bay Area, California, I attended Lick-Wilmerding High School in San Francisco before taking a gap year prior to starting at CMU. During that time, I had my first job, working in a tech startup, and traveled to Nepal where I spent my time was spent trekking, learning jewelry as an apprentice, and studying development to name a few. I've been running since high school and now run Varsity Track & Field for CMU.
