I am an interdisciplinary researcher, designer, and educator, committed to creative solutions that improve processes and experiences for people. I believe in human-centered, inclusive design supported by current, validated evidence.
My work focuses on material culture and the built environment as sites for connection and culture-building. I work with teams and clients to articulate the goals of new build and renovations; I have a special passion for shared spaces, innovative educational facilities, placemaking, and Makerspaces.
As an educator, I facilitate design thinking, speculative design, and innovative thinking workshops and provide information on evidence-based design and social science research.
I currently work as a design researcher and space planner for DLR Group; all content and opinions on this site are my own.
