As a designer and artist, I am excited by the intersections of society, culture, and design. And I seek design solutions through thoughtful and rigorous research and reflection. I believe design should be empathetic, socially and environmentally responsible, accessible, and civically-minded.

Recently, I graduated with a Master’s in Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design where I received a 2021 RISD MID Thesis Award for my graduate thesis work, titled “Beacon Public Library,” and the Rachel Carson Environmental Award for leadership in addressing environmental concerns and social issues through an industrial design context by the RISD MID department. Before RISD, I designed book covers and interiors at Simon & Schuster/Adams Media and magazine layouts at Marie Claire magazine. I received my Bachelor’s in International Relations and Visual Arts from Brown University.
