But professionally, I'm a product designer working as the design systems lead at Etsy in Brooklyn, NY.
I spent my first three years focusing on the Etsy seller experience, building products to help our sellers manage their inventory, navigate their tools, and onboard as first-time sellers. Simultaneously, I was designing and writing code to patternize components in our front-end web toolkit and disseminating knowledge to fellow designers and engineers.
More recently, I've transitioned to the buyer experience as the design systems lead, where my focus is on elevating the quality of experiences while shopping on Etsy and maintaining consistency throughout our design and front-end engineer org.
As one of two product designers at an early stage start-up, my work spanned from product strategization, user testing, and high level UX design to UI design and front-end development.
My focus was on UI and UX design for client products and marketing sites, with a touch of front-end development and occassional illustration and type design.
Post-graduation, I spent my time developing my design skills and working for an assortment of advertising agencies and branding agencies before landing on product design as a direction of interest.
Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Business and a minor in Studio Art.
