View Resume

I am currently a User Experience Designer located in Orange County pursuing a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of California, Irvine.

Empathy, design thinking and critical thinking are my strengths. I love a challenge, and my true passion lies in solving problems through design.

I currently lead a team of five bright designers at Ingram Micro in the Global Business Intelligence and Analytics team. Here, I am responsible for providing strategic direction in creating seamless products and experiences from a user-centered design approach. Our products range from large-scale home-grown programs to lead generation tools to various other B2B platforms/applications.

Aside from design, I co-founded The KeyLight Perspective, a nonprofit organization that serves to inspire change through videography and digital storytelling. Over the course of three years, we've partnered with various nonprofit organizations including YMCA, Giving Children Hope, Snip Team, and Helpkin to raise awareness to some of society's biggest problems: ending child hunger, decreasing animal euthanasia and promoting early prevention of cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and childhood obesity.
