A Pandemic Pivot

defined as an unexpected career change due to a global crisis

After losing my job at an award-winning restaurant in Brooklyn, I began the ultimate career change into digital design. Since June, 2020, I’ve worked with creative entrepreneurs on brand voice, visual identity, and website design.

Through freelancing I became more interested in user experience design that goes beyond beautiful aesthetics and considers larger user problems and how they work in tandem with business goals. Since then, I’ve been learning how to implement more product design thinking into every project through self-study on Youtube, paid online education, and trial and error. 

I care about accessibility and inclusion, both online and offline. Through education, experimentation, and observation, I plan to expand my thinking of how an accessible digital experiences can take form. 

When away from the computer, I enjoy browsing vintage finds, biking around the city, and experimenting with my film camera — ideally all in the same day.
