I am currently working towards a Master of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, with a focus on design for interaction. I have always believed that design has the power to change the world, whether that be subtly or monumentally. I began my career as an art director and designer, helping clients bring ideas to life in new and creative ways. During the first few years of my professional career I found myself attracted to other areas of the design and advertising worlds—strategy and research, user experience, and advance technology. Being ever curious, I began to wonder how might technology, design, and human life be intertwined. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the intersection of technology and disability, in particular those who are deaf or hard of hearing, and how that might create a more accessible world for everyone. I like to approach problems with a whimsical lens, creating designs that elicit emotional responses.
