Formally trained Anthropologist with vast experience in the design industry.
I've been a designer and researcher for 10+ years and explored different paths, learned new skills, and grew in others. Along the way I've found some favorite parts of the work that I do, and found areas that pique my curiosity - like decolonizing design, human and culture-centered practices, and ethical research.
My past experience as a cultural anthropologist and archaeologist has shaped how I approach design and qualitative research. It drives my interest in asking deeper questions and uncovering the socio-cultural root of problems to better understand the solution.
I'm currently a Senior Product Designer at NCX, where I'm working to implement a strong human-centered design and research practice.
