The Details

I just finished interning at Common Good, doing all kinds of work from quick prototyping to working with NHS doctors to bring their ideas to life.

I graduated from Umeå Institute of Design in Northern Sweden in June of 2016 and spent the summer taking workshops at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. Before getting into design, I studied chemistry and economics at Williams College and worked in data analysis and machine learning in developmental economics, law, social media, and politics. 

In each project I tackle, I bring my curiosity and critical thinking to understand how things are put together and what influences decisions. The problems that interest me the most are the ones that are solved at the edges and intersections of disciplines. I'm excited by both new innovations as well as by smart applications of old technologies.

I am currently looking for design opportunities for 2017. Get in touch if you'd like to chat!

Currently...

Excited about: All the work that's coming out in biotech using CRISPR

Reading: Rework: Change the Way You Work Forever by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson

Listening to: Next Escape by Viceroy ft. Patrick Baker (definitely a summer jam)

 

Let's chat over coffee?
