I developed critical design skills while earning my bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of California, Berkeley. I learned how to conduct primary research and analyze data in courses like Empirical Analysis and Quantitative Methods and Statistics. I learned the behavioral and psychological theories that underpin modern UX design in Psychology and Game Theory.
I learned how to perform secondary research, synthesize complex information, and craft strong rhetorical arguments writing countless research papers. I learned to clearly articulate my thoughts and defend my conclusions through hours of discussion and persuasive essay writing.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dog Stella (pictured) and playing music. I learned to play guitar after hearing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" for the first time at the age of 14, but I've since discovered the joy of Ableton Live. On moodier days, you may find me playing covers of Elliott Smith.
