about me

My curiosity is sparked by the intersection of technology, art & design.

An East Coast native, I grew up on Cape Cod & now reside in Cambridge, MA. I graduated from UConn in 2017 with a bachelors in Biomedical Engineering & entered the biomedical research field.

 

However, I realized what I really loved most about engineering was the process of finding efficient and effective design solutions. This led me to grad school at Northeastern University to study Digital Media.  I recently graduated in June 2020 with my Masters concentrated in Usability/Development.

 

I'm currently looking for full-time opportunities in the Boston area, and would love to connect!

Resume available upon request.
