I solve problems through design.
My interest in experience and design stems from my background in public art and installation work, seeing how changes in the environment could impact people’s outlook and their surroundings.
I help people make products and services that are useful, that make you think, that make you feel, and make you act. I'm focused on research-driven design, collaboration, and advocating for users. I've spent the last few years educating and providing resources for others to do the same.
I currently work at Mendix (a Siemens company), leveraging and advocating for behavioral design and design thinking practices within the emerging low-code space. I’m also a facilitator, behavioral design specialist, and co-founder for Ruminate, an organization that supports food systems with a conscience and fosters smarter, healthier connections between people and food.
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.
You can find me at the Fab@CIC, a maker community run by CIC, where I help with fabrication projects, events, and training; and at Studio 213 in Boston's SoWa Art & Design District and Atlantic Works in East Boston where I'm a contributing artist.
