Don’t wish for it. Work for it.
              
 
DEC / 2018
       





1. Started as an artist


My father handed me a film camera when I was 10 years old and the rest is history. I fell in love with film photography and hosted my own solo gallery show at 13. I went on to graduate from Boston University for Film & Television.




2. Worked in advertising


I worked as a graphic designer to pay for college and moved to Los Angeles seeking work at a flashy ad agency. I became a video editor and worked up the ladder from editing TV commercials to directing them. I also picked up a Master’s in Communication Management from USC.





3. Pivot to product design


I doubled-down on my design expertise by attending a UX bootcamp in San Francisco (my hometown). I’m currently a UX Specialist at Change Healthcare and previously worked at Asurion as a Senior UX Designer. In my spare time I work on passion projects that address challenges in transportation and urbanization.
