Hello 👋

I’m a UX Designer passionate about creating easy-to-use products at scale solving problems for millions of people.

I currently work on YouTube’s app team focused on core watch experiences across mobile, web and tablet based in San Bruno, CA.

Previouly, I was on Pixel Camera app team building world's best moment capturing experience. I also worked on Google Clock app designing for bedtime and waking up experience. Before that I was a UX Research intern on Verily's project baseline where I helped shape the design on Verily's Clinical Watch.

I studied at School of Informatics and Computing - Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis where I gained expertise in how people and computing connect and completed Masters in Human Computer Interaction in 2018.

I'm a communicator, a storyteller and a collaborator.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my site!
