My interest in experience and design stems from my background in art history, public art, and installation work. Making public art in Boston and seeing how changes in the environment could impact people’s outlook and how they viewed their surroundings struck a cord with me. Studying art history was introduction to how and why art and design can impact people and drive change. I've expanded my interests towards behavioral and cognitive psychology and how they affect design. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve; to enable myself and others to make better decisions.
Since 2014, I have co-organized the Boston chapter of Action Design, a non-profit exploring behavioral studies in economics, psychology, and design for advocacy and policy towards positive change. I served as Director of Education, VP, and Director of Partnership and Community Outreach for AIGA Boston, the professional association for design. I was also a contributor to the Fab@CIC makerspace, where I helped with people with fabrication projects, events, and training. I’m a behavioral design specialist for Ruminate, a non-profit organization that I’ve started with some friends that supports food systems with a conscience and fosters smarter, healthier connections between people and food. I’m also a member of SOTA and help with organizing TypeCon.
