I’m a Product Design Lead with 8+ years of experience across Meta, IDEO, MSFT, and various freelance work. I’ve led large teams, been a high-level IC,  and refined my approach to design and mentorship through the amazing folks I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside.

As both a people-person and a systems-thinker, I’ve found that my favorite challenges ask me to think, empathize, and build in new and innovative ways.
