I collaborate with organizations and individuals looking to create measurable, real-world change in social and environmental sustainability. Does this sound like you? Let’s work together! I’m currently accepting projects and partnerships.
I am a freelance designer who helps design evidence-based, human-centered services that advance the greater good. My focus is behavior change for social and environmental sustainability. I dig evidence, optimism, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
I have a B.F.A. in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design and a B.A. in Cognitive Science from Brown University. I have served as a behavior change designer, service designer, UX designer, and facilitator. Most recently, I was a Behavior Change Designer at Mad*Pow, where I helped create digital interventions for clients looking to improve health and financial wellbeing. Check out my full resume here.

Who I work with
What I believe in
Invest in understanding the problem from multiple perspectives before jumping to solutions. This includes qualitative research with those affected by a challenge, expert interviews, literature reviews, and competitive analysis.
Interdisciplinary teams generate better ideas than multiple specialists. I work directly with you throughout the design process, from formative research to evaluation.
Community engagement and collaboration is essential to sustainable solutions. Lived experience is valuable expertise, and designing with community members and other stakeholders makes it more likely the solution will respond to actual need.
Outcome evaluation is a necessary part of responsible design. I work with you to define intended outcomes and a measurement plan at the beginning of the design process to ensure the design is working as intended.
