I'm a critical thinker, lifelong learner, unrelenting optimist, and trained social scientist* (FWIW) on a perpetual quest for deeper understanding.
As an academic-turned-UX researcher and designer, I'm equipped with an eye for detail, data, and accuracy. As a design thinker and former marketer, I execute and communicate insights, recommendations, and strategies that meet user and organizational needs. And as a (former, for now) world traveller, I offer unbridled adaptability, flexibility, and empathy.
Based in Berlin, Germany, I've lived in New York, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, New Delhi, and Copenhagen. I'm originally from Richmond, VA, USA.
When not at work, you'll find me practicing yoga, pilates, and insight meditation; hut-to-hut hiking; reading fiction and (nearly) anything about human and social behavior; binging podcasts; and/or trying not to kill all of my houseplants.
