Good design is about compassion. 

It removes our ego and focuses on how to relieve the suffering of others. When we can articulate this, design becomes a force for change in society, creating a bridge between experience, interface and personality. 

With a background in art history, painting, colour theory and a passion for visual language, I'm interested in the way our bodies relate to information, meaning and experience. I hope to further develop my knowledge of Interaction Design, Visual Analytics, Sketchnoting and collaborative learning.

On my last project and my current project (The Open Health Initiative), I have been leading my team in developing the visual language for the tone, messaging and narrative of our project as well as conceptual designs for logo iterations, layout backgrounds, wireframes and overall look and feel.
