I am a designer and user-centered design researcher. I studied industrial design at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP). As part of the university’s co-op internship program I had the opportunity to intern with Industry, Yellow Window, ECCO Design, Ethicon, Herbst Produkt, and Eleven. Before studying design, I graduated from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, where I earned a degree in psychology and raced on the cross-country running and ski teams. After graduation I worked as a youth coach and event coordinator for the Loppet Foundation, a Minneapolis nonprofit that promotes cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and outdoor sports.

I am currently working at Worrell in Minneapolis.
