I am a UX designer, a design thinker, an independent consultant, a team (cheer)leader, and a life-long student. I love movement, messy unfinished things, and can play tetris for a frighteningly long period of time.

Design for me is about reframing, co-creating, and articulating new values-based experiences that have emotional resonance.

My career orientation is around using technology and design methods for economic and human development. I'm currently an Associate Design Director at McKinsey & Co.

I keep updated These are some important ideas that have influenced me, things I have tried to articulate through words, and some things I have worked on. If any of it resonates with you, please reach out to say hello. I would love to meet you.
