“The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize, empathize, synthesize, and glean insights that enable him or her to ‘make the invisible visible.’ –Hillman Curtis

I am a designer with a passion for building products with a holistic approach. Good design is not just about the end result - but the process. Designers are not merely pixel pushers, but purveyors of empathy and co-creation. 

I adapt the scientific method of making a design hypothesis and testing different solutions. My strength is combining human-centered design with business/organizational goals. 

In the past few years, I have been expanding my design skills through travel and immersing myself in global communities. Here are some of the things I've been up to:

Mentored freshmen students in their first hackathon in Penang, Malaysia.
Taught accessibility design with memes in Capetown, South Africa 
Documenting good design everywhere
