I strive to inspire and be inspired by socially responsible and innovative design. Through a range of experiences, I hope to promote an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to problem solving including research and advocacy practices found in the fields of public health and public policy. I love to think, write, draw diagrams and put all the pieces together.

I implore a systematic and efficient work style and value communication, patience and laughter in the workplace.
