I’m a Product Designer and Researcher based in the Bay Area. Currently, I’m a Masters candidate at UC Berkeley studying Information Management and Systems with a focus on HCI, in addition to taking additional cross-enrollment MBA courses at the Haas School of Business.

One of my superpowers is being able to work across the product pipeline as a hybrid researcher and designer; it's hard for me to choose one or the other, I enjoy them both! I've been a researcher and strategist at hi-tech companies — before going back to school, I was an Associate User Researcher at Salesforce helping bring to life what the integration between Salesforce and Slack might look like post-acquisition. I was most recently at  This background in research makes me a data-first designer — I know how to make informed design decisions based on customer insights.

I did my undergrad in Cognitive Science at the University of California, Davis; I used to spend a lot of time there curled up on the couch, building side projects around the intersection of code, design, and research (while also getting some back pain). I was also deeply embedded in leading and teaching the design community on campus so that UX education could accessible outside the classroom.
