There is nothing better than a well told story.


A well told story can transport us to new worlds, introduce us to new people, and show us new ways of being. At the same time, It can show us who we are and what our world looks like.


I believe that good storytelling is integral to all fields. As a researcher, I study the stories people tell about themselves and their environments to identify insights that are accurate to their contexts and culture. As a designer, I leverage storytelling to build meaningful products that spark moments of connection and delight. As a strategist and collaborator, I use storytelling to communicate across disciplines. And finally, as an artist, I use storytelling as a way to find community.
