I am a designer and artist who is passionate about learning from the past to create beautifully designed user experiences for modern technologies from sensors and IoT to technology driven services. I am passionate about learning from users in order to design for them. My background includes product design, illustration and general work in industries of weather, environment, education, and food, from start-ups, non-profits and large 100 year old companies.

In my free time I focus on urban farming/gardening, food preservation and learning past trades in order to create a more self sustainable existence. I believe technology when learning from the past can move us into a more meaningful future allowing less consumption, and preserve and understand more of the world around us.

In addition, I speak English, some Brasilian Portuguese and some French. I serve on the board for the non-profit, the Greater Bay Area Costuming Guild.

I majored in Illustration and design at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, where I worked on my passion of story telling.
