i create and facilitate interactive, reflective learning experiences -- often in the forms of workshops, courses, 1-on-1 coaching, and consulting -- centered on using design practices to collaboratively, critically approach challenges, both digital and analog.
currently, i'm also on the team at creative reaction lab, where i design and facilitate hands-on trainings to guide people in using a design framework called equity-centered community design.
i also make zines and dance. you can find my other creative stuff here.
no design exists in a vacuum. when designing, it’s important to examine how the final outcome (whether a product, service, or experience) will fit within a broader context.
good design never ends. it’s grounded in the ongoing improvement, iteration, and evolution of ideas. while i strive to design in ways that are inclusive and accessible, i recognize an ongoing need to continue to learn how to design for more access and inclusion.
design is best when it’s done collaboratively. in good design processes, every person has something to offer, and every person has something to learn.
i believe that every decision is a design, and that huge systems are made up of micro designs. designs, no matter the scale, impact systems and the people who interact with those systems. i seek to (co)design experiences, products, and processes that challenge systems of oppression and exclusion, and promote equity, inclusion, and accessibility.
