My design education started with my Gender Studies degree.

To be a designer you need creativity and insight. Even though I grew up making art, I didn't have any vision and my work didn't have purpose. Gender studies taught me about privledge, oppression, and empathy, and I started to see things differently.

I turned outwards and wanted to help others. I had new vision and creativity was my only marketable skill, so I combined them and started practicing human-centered Industrial Design.

To be honest, I loved my work and I got to make some beautiful things, but I realized I still wasn't really accomplishing what I'd set out to do. I needed to live my values and create work that helps people.

That's why I became an Interaction Designer.

I think good design is essential for good living and I love working with people who share that sentiment.
