UX / ESFP / Aries / Ravenclaw

Good design is a war for the truth. It's about fighting through egos, misconceptions, and stalemates to emerge with something beautiful.

I live for lightbulb-bursting revelations, but I know epiphanies don't happen by themselves. Smart solutions require teamwork, empathy, and evidence-based thinking — not to mention ink-stained fingers and piles of Post-Its.

I'm currently the Head of Design & Research at FutureFuel.io, a FinTech startup dedicated to crushing student debt. I have an M.S. in Information Experience Design from the Pratt Institute. I've been a copywriter, an email marketer, and a community manager in a past life. I received my dual B.A. in Journalism and Urban Design from NYU.
