I am an artist, designer and developer with degrees in Biomedical Communications and Biomedical Engineering.

I currently work in Product Design at Synaptive Medical, where I tackle usability and design for surgical robotics and navigation. My previous work was at AXS Studio, where I designed and coded apps for mobile and AR.

Outside of work, I am learning drumming, backyard farming, throwing things (mostly pots), rocking an ukulele, and also design pop-up cards for fun.
