projects & personal work
delve: history videos
Created (researched, wrote, edited) a video about "rainmakers" that tried to overcome nature at the turn of the 20th century
(and how their legacy has lived on). Making videos has been one major focus of my current learning sabbatical, and more are in the works! I've always loved history and storytelling and will get sucked into hours of research about niche topics; now I'm using those strengths to create and tell stories that others can learn from.
We created a spice kiosk that uses computer vision to recommend what college students should add to their food. Ideated, iterated, and built with a group for a design course.
I designed and prototyped an interactive wall for my undergraduate honors thesis. I ran experiments with my prototype, testing and understanding the specifics of the physical-control interactions through user trials. Presented at the 2017 Tangible and Embedded Interaction Conference (Student Design section) in Yokohama, Japan.
I created a web layout framework
inspired by Masonry
that allows web developers to add “tiles” to an auto-layout grid while providing specific positions to important tiles.
about & contact
I graduated with honors from Brown University in 2017, having been a design & front-end intern at Microsoft and a software intern at Facebook.
I then worked at Facebook and Instagram for 3 years as an iOS developer.
Now I’m taking a break from software to explore storytelling, political work, making videos, writing, and data visualization.
