UX Researcher. Design Thinker

I am currently a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley School of Information. I have experience in innovation, collaboration, decision making as well as software development, with a penchant for public speaking and communication.

My focus areas are UX research and design, product management, and innovation. I consider myself goal-oriented, always looking for my next challenge. Products are where my passion lies, and I enjoy collaborating to bring the right products to the right people. I believe that effective products can only be created through a genuine understanding of the needs and capabilities of the end user. This kind of approach has let me develop an open mind while constantly building, measuring, and evaluating. Before tackling any problem, I like to take a step back and look at the big picture, which in my experience, is where the solution always lies.
