I am an UX/UI Designer with a rich career in human-centered design in the nonprofit space. As a Design Fellow at Blue Ridge Labs @ Robin Hood Foundation, I cofounded Turnstyle, an award-winning project focused on improving the client experience of asking for help and accessing resources in human services.

Previously, I led the website redesign for Safe Horizon, the leading victim assistance organization in the US. I have also served as Creative Director for an education nonprofit based in Honduras, and as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Oakland. With traditional agency experience, I have also worked with commercial global brands like CrossFit and Nokia.
