I am currently enrolled in Domus Academy's Master in Interaction Design in Milano, Italia. When not designing at Domus, you can find me wandering through a museum or on the volleyball court with ASD Zeronove. Follow along as I improve my Italian skills using Memrise and Duolingo.
I am also an independent User Experience Consultant for digital agencies, startups and technology companies. I help companies better understand and serve their audiences through research, design and a unique interdisciplinary background in politics, business and mathematics. You can also find me teaching online for General Assembly and Google for Entrepreneurs.
In the past, I worked as a UX Designer for JOOR, AppNexus and UX Lead for Advomatic. I have donated instruction and mentoring to Girls Who Code and StartupWeekend NYC. Past speaking appearances include SXSW Interactive 2010 & 2011, Netroots Nation, IPDI's Politics Online and Organizing 2.0.
Born and raised in New York City's Upper West Side, I ventured out west to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government at Claremont McKenna College. After four years of political debate, Model UN, reading and interning, I pivoted back into design and technology. I am still connected to the political space through New Leaders Council, where I was a Fellow in 2009 and later NYC Chapter Director and Alumni Chair.
