Currently, I'm an Experience Designer at ONE. Previously, I was a product designer on the Fleet Platform team at Lyft focusing on improving internal tools. Prior to that, I interned at Lyft on the Business Design+ team working on enterprise solutions. On the side, I worked on building Meetable's mobile community app for prospective university students.

Design for Community
Especially with working in a remote environment, I want to help improve digital products that evoke community and collaboration.
Always Be Learning
I am constantly looking for ways to learn new skills that I can apply to my field. I also want to be taking my mistakes or failures and reflecting on them to become better as a designer.
Take a Break
This applies to not only my workflow, but also with designing, I oftentimes hit a wall with ideation. Sometimes stepping away and coming back to your design will give you a fresh perspective.

How did I get here?
I am always looking for ways to design innovative solutions for the simplest of actions.
While I've always loved creating from a young age, I believe my journey in design began with playing around on photoshop during a grade 10 business class. This initially pushed me towards the graphic design field. Surprisingly, taking a liberal arts class per my college degree requirements is what led me to pursue UX design. There, I learned how design goes beyond the visual and encompasses how we behave and interact with our surroundings.
