I am a researcher-designer specializing in visual ethnographic methods, interviewing, and cross-team facilitation.

Right now, I work for Dropbox on one of our Growth teams. I collaborate with designers, product managers, and engineers to enable the company to re-envision work beyond file storage.

Previously, I worked for Atlassian, conducting insights research. My studies informed the 2017 rebrand and top of the funnel experimentation, among other product strategy pieces.

Before that, I worked as a designer based in London, consulting across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Clients included Amnesty International, Standard Bank, GUCCI, hepsiburada, UNICEF, and the UK government, among others. 

I studied social science at the University of Oxford (MSc '16) and UC Santa Cruz (BA '12 summa cum laude). I specialized in visual ethnography and interviewing.

Outside work, I am happiest surfing small waves, cooking with a glass of wine, or playing peek-a-book with my niece.
