Here, you can write a brief introduction to your page. This engages your visitors and answers questions they may have about you.
I am currently a 4th year Cognitive Science: Human-Computer Interaction student at UCSD, with a Business minor. I strongly believe that the heart of design is in serving people. I love finding problems and solve them with creativity. Observant is a word my friends always describe me as: I never overlook small details that might lead to an insight. However, I look at what's beyond that, the big picture, while doing so. I've got a life of curiosity that makes me incredibly good at rapidly acquiring more knowledge and skills, however much it takes to enable the design. My ultimate goal is to create delightful interactions that make technology feel like less, thus empowering us to do more and live fully.
If you think we might get along, send me a note, and I'll happily write back, call, or grab tea.
Some of my favorite quotes
"The road is long, we carry on. Try to have fun in the meantime."
-Lana Del Rey
"Good design is actually a lot harder to notice than poor design, in part because good designs fit our needs so well that the design is invisible."
"Beauty and brains, pleasure and usability - they should go hand in hand."
“To have a good idea you must first have lots of ideas.”
-Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner
"90% of the world’s designers spend all their time addressing the problems of the richest 10% of the world’s customers."
-Paul Polak, development expert
“It doesn’t matter how clever you are, your first idea about something is never right. So the great value of prototyping—and prototyping quickly and inexpensively—is that you learn about the idea and make it better.”
-Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO
"Prosperity in human societies can’t be properly understood by looking just at monetary measures, such as income or wealth. Prosperity in a society is the accumulation of solutions to human problems."
-Eric Beinhocker and Nick Hanauer, McKinsey
"Finding new solutions to human problems is rarely easy or obvious—if it was, they would have already been found."
"When you are challenged, you are asked to become more than you were. That means creating new perspectives, acquiring new skills and pushing boundaries."
