I’m a design researcher with prototyping experience. I champion people's unique needs while understanding what drives the success of a product or service. 

I’m open-minded when it comes to deciding which tools, methods or skills to use. Whatever gets the job done well and equitably.

I enjoy complex problems that require patience and creativity. I can zoom out to connect needs across users, staff, business goals, technology, and contexts such as policy, regulation, and accessibility.
