About 

I'm an Oakland-based designer who enjoys working with creative teams and taking on responsibilities in project documentation, design development presentations, and the fabrication of material, physical prototypes. With a Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Harvard University and a Master’s of Architecture from MIT, I am comfortable bridging the physical and theoretical worlds. I enjoy working with challenging quantitative data and engaging with the critical and creative processes of design across the scales of architecture. I bring to my work a standing commitment to what the feminist historian Donna Haraway has called “response-ability”-the ability to respond to advance social and environmental justice through the agency of design.
