I am a design researcher and strategist guided by understanding products, services, and experiences within their cultural contexts. With an analytical approach to design, I utilize qualitative research to interpret cultural phenomena and uncover rich design opportunities.
I have spent the past few years living in Berlin, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chicago, and Cincinnati. I have lead multiple non-profit initiatives to tackle social challenges and build a more equitable future. Currently, I am working towards a B.S. in Product Design with a minor in Economics at the University of Cincinnati. In my free time, you can find me practicing a new language or staying current with humanitarian news.
