A bit of context
My journey with design began during my undergrad years. I've always enjoyed the hands-on experience of solving problems and building solutions. I made it my mission to turn design into my superpower by joining design clubs, hackathons, and various design opportunities.
Finding the design community was another reason why I fell in love with the field. For me, design is a powerful tool that inspires, informs, and connects with people, just as it did for me.
My design values
I value innovative thinking, collaboration, functionality, and purpose in designs. Good designs require diverse perspectives and commitment to intentionality and clarity. With a mindset focused on continuous growth and learning, I strive to seize every opportunity to broaden both my horizons and my craft.
What I'm up to now
I'm a recent graduate with a BA in Design and a minor in Communications at the University of California, Davis. As a passionate and experienced designer, I am eager to apply my expertise in visual design, UX, and product design. Additionally, I am proficient with Figma, Adobe Suite, and HTML/CSS.
