Hello 👋


I’m a senior product designer at New_ Public, designing with public broadcasters for our Public Spaces Incubator. Previously, I worked as a product designer in the media and journalism industry in New York and D.C., including at Meta, The Atlantic, and Axios.

After studying comparative literature at Washington University in St. Louis, I moved to Italy to pursue my interests in photography and design. I still rely on what I learned as a comparative literature student: the importance of placing any work within its broader context. Later, I earned a master’s in economics at The New School for Social Research, where I focused on the relationship between economics, ethics, and politics. This continues to help me to understand the historical and economic context of design, and the social and political implications of technology.

In my free time, I try to take a break from the screen: I like to read and write 📚, take photos 📸, and spend time outside 🧘‍♀️🌴🌊.
