As a designer I like to take a deep dive into the topic I’m working with. My design work focuses on people, stories and creating experiences that spark joy in people's lives.
During an Adobe Creative Jam two-week design sprint I led a team through research, design development, and prototyping. The design challenge was based around food insecurity and my team focused our efforts on older adults, age 65 and above, who are too scared to grocery shop during Covid-19. The final product was an app that provides a way for people to volunteer within their community by delivering groceries to older adults. My role as team lead included project management, organizing files, creating a project timeline, and making deadlines. I designed the logo, as well as pitched our final project to judges. This project awarded third place out of thirty-five participating teams.
Food insecurity and food waste in the midst of a pandemic, specifically concerning older adults.
Our app has two user flows, one for the volunteer and one for the older adult. Each user has unique needs that need to be catered to in the way the app is designed.

An engaging way-finding system for Downtown Culver City.
Downtown Culver City is confusing and the landscape is unfriendly to pedestrians.
Way-finding in a downtown area should be fun and easy to encourage pedestrians to navigate their neighborhood.
We designed a smart street lamp system to guide users to their destination in a fun and engaging way.
By getting detailed, empathetic help from peers in the same boat, students can stay on their college roadmap and graduate on time.
More than a third of SMC students are first-generation college students, while nearly 50 percent come from families whose parents did not complete two years of college. In our interviews, we heard over and over again that FGCS feel that college resources are spread out and disconnected.
FGCS's want to feel a sense of community within their college experience and these students don’t have the same level of parental guidance through the college process, so they are more reliant on school support.
With Wonderland, students have access to school resources 24/7. It's a place where students can access all resources in one place, connect with fellow students, and get personalized guidance.
