Design isn’t about design. It’s about people.

I explore how design thinking, processes, and outcomes affect, and are influenced by human perception and behavior on a systemic level. Through getting to know people groups via field work and facilitating co-creation of design interventions, my work benefits communities while producing a clearer understanding of how people construct meaning by studying the solutions they create.
