I am an interdisciplinary designer—in the midst of social, graphic and product design—with an inclination toward creating relational experiences. A natural collaborator and aggregator myself, I strive to understand ways of doing and living together, so my work is often entangled with community building and maintainance processes. My latest projects seek to activate simple gestures of collective care, which translated into tools and workshops.
