I am human centered designer with backgrounds in architecture and interior design. I believe that in order to provide a holistic spatial experience it is necessary to understand our environment at the building scale while also understanding the forces driving human behavior, perception, and decision making. This mindset has led me to develop an interest for design strategy and creating sensory experiences for our minds, bodies, and environment through iterative design thinking processes. I care about utilizing design as a tool for social impact and sustained change. Most recently, I was a Global Health Corps design fellow in Rwanda with MASS Design Group.
