👋 I am glad you are here!

I am an Emmy Award-winning designer based in New York City, focusing on user experience, visual design, and interaction design. I am a Design Lead at IBM leading multiple projects involving human-centered design and creating internal tools to support hundreds of thousands of IBM employees across the world.

As a founding member of Triller, I launched a social video-making application with over 80 million downloads. In the past, I have worked with a diverse range of companies and clients, including Nickelodeon, MTV Networks, USA Today, The Weather Company, Chanel, Michael Kors, J.Crew, and Godiva.

My experiences have led me to present at a variety of design conferences, organizations, meetups, and companies, including UXPA, AHFE, Adobe, BKProductDesign, and Girls Who Code for STEM. I have also been a guest speaker at multiple universities, including Binghamton University, Fashion Institute of Technology, The New School, Pratt Institute, University of Connecticut, Cornell University, and the University of Florida.
