I never thought I'd become a designer.

To Sum It Up

I graduated from New York University in May 2017 and was on a pre-law track. However, my final year I declared a web programming minor to see what the excitement was about. It was through development that I found my love for design. It was the first time I was actually excited to learn and got addicted to creating things. So after graduation, I took a leap of faith and made the career switch to design.

I haven’t looked back since.

I'm currently a product designer at Betterment. Previously, I was a product designer at Meetup and a product design intern at Oak Studios. If you’d like to reach out about anything, send me an e-mail.
