I'm an inventive interaction designer based in Brooklyn, New York.

I spend my days observing the world, noticing moments of frustration and asking Why?, What if?, and I Wish! Then making it happen.

I split my time between personal projects and my day job, most recently as Senior Product Designer at Kinetic, a startup building a safety device used by factory workers.

A few of my projects include reinventing the parking sign at To Park or Not To Park, cataloging a pattern library of the physical world at City Objects, and running a virtual pop-up book club for The Death and Life of Great American Cities called Reading Jane. I enjoy mentoring designers and guest crit at the Parsons School of Design and Columbia Graduate School of Architecture.
