I am a Master of Design candidate in Design for Interactions.  I previously earned my B.S in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University and also studied Interior Architecture at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark.  My most recent work experience has been as a product design intern on the UX team at Salesforce.com.  Prior to that I spent two years as a designer in the hospitality studio at CBT Architects in Boston, MA.  I have also interned with the urban design studio at FXFowle Architects in New York, NY and the facilities design department at Southwest Airlines in Dallas, TX.

I am interested in learning about the challenges that people and industries are facing today and enjoy the opportunity that I have as a designer to be able to create functional and innovative design solutions to those challenges. My passion for design, research, strategy, and innovation is grounded in understanding human behavior and the relationships between people and the environments, products, and technology with which they interact.
