Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I migrated to California to get a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Scripps College and then received my master's degree in Media and Communications from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I'm currently working with Nest, designing the software-hardware experience for cameras and lock products. Outside of designing, I put my energy into supporting the next generation of Designers. I've previously served on the Board of Directors of AIGA San Francisco and am currently a coding instructor with Girls Who Code and also with Designlab in the Denver area. In a previous life, I worked in public relations with a focus in product promotions for global enterprise software companies. I'm also an illustrator, a useless passion project enthusiast and a painter.
