I am a New York based Product/UX Designer. I recently completed my graduate studies at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), where I learned how to make the invisible, visible. It was at ITP that I learned how to learn. Studying design, technology, and creative story-telling with a human-centered approach has influenced all my projects ever since.
Prior to ITP, I worked at startups (my own and others) and also completed my other graduate studies at Rutgers University in behavioral economics, which has given me great insight into human behavior and the psychological and cognitive factors that go into decision-making. The insights gathered from these fields helped me better understand why people behave the way they do, design more effective products and services that positively influence behavior, and make more informed predictions about how design impacts people.
