I care about creating things that make the world better in a strategic, thoughtful, and beautiful way. Currently I lead the design of the refugee experience for the Airbnb Open Homes program, a platform for people to host those in times of need. Before that, I worked at IDEO.org on projects ranging from a micro-health insurance start-up in Tanzania to a smartphone app for the largest mobile money provider in Bangladesh. Above all, I'm passionate about designing elegant, intuitive experiences for those who aren’t always designed for.

I studied Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design and Anthropology at Brown University. Nowadays, my work is at the intersection of research, product strategy, and design. When I'm not creating, I'm most likely traveling, hiking, or hosting meaningful conversations through Tea With Strangers.
