I am a recent graduate of the Master’s of Human-Computer Interaction program at Carnegie Mellon University, looking to hit the ground running in a design career.
I come from a multidisciplinary background, spanning from design, to computer science, to linguistics, to classical music performance. Because of this, I collaborate well with multi-talented teams, and easily develop empathy for a range of users.
When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking, doodling, and outdoor activities.
I am proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, as well as the prototyping tool Axure. I have experience designing for print, desktop, tablet, and phones, including responsive websites. I have also used and modified boilerplates such as Bootstrap and Skeleton CSS for my designs.
I have conducted in-depth user research on a team and by myself, in a variety of environments. I think well on my feet, and have a diverse toolkit of research methods to use, depending on the situation. Because of my multidisciplinary background, it’s easy for me to relate to users of all kinds.
I started writing HTML and CSS in elementary school, and studied computer science in undergrad. I’m not afraid to do some coding on projects, or learn a new language to make it work! My knowledge of coding also informs my design sense, as I have a good understanding of what is and isn’t feasible.
