Growing up, I was always enamored with technology. My curiosity was multifaceted - I was taking apart and reassembling remote control cars, teaching myself Adobe Photoshop and Sony Vegas and editing other people's YouTube videos, and programming my own video games to realize the coolest concepts dreamt up by my teenage brain.
My curiosity led me to pursue a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering and a role as an engineer helping millions achieve financial well-being. Even so, I sensed something was missing. I realized I was always lost in the implementation details - in the how. I was always handed the business requirements to a solution, but never got to decide what we were building and why. This led me to pursue my Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction, where I fell in love with solving human problems even more so than technical ones. With this foundation, I now design human-centered solutions which strive to not only solve complex challenges but also deliver joy.
When I'm not designing, I'm an amateur home pizzaiolo and barista. You can also find me cycling around New York, capturing the city or my travels on camera, supporting local musicians and gaming.
