At 4'11" I may be tiny but as Galadriel said to Frodo in the first Lord of the Rings movie "even the smallest person can change the course of the future." As a designer who strives to improve people's lives, I've worked on products that secure people's data and have created a board game that enables algebra students to practice using core concepts in a collaborative setting.

I'm currently working with Cali Dog Security to make an excellent phishing solution that's practical and affordable. Our main objective is to create a product that requires the least amount of user involvement as necessary to provide a smooth and satisfying experience.April 2017 – Present
Security is complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. ThinAir gives security officers the ability to see who touched the company’s sensitive data (i.e. social security numbers) and find out how it was leaked, all without disrupting employees’ natural workflow.
Along with Lead designer Ace Vu, I’ve had the opportunity to establish product guidelines and build a seamless experience across web, desktop (macOS and Windows), and mobile (iOS and Android).
In parallel, we completely redesigned the marketing website and I stepped in to help out with front-end development as needed. Check it out!
NEO Graphic Design Club – Secretary
The BFA program is a vigorous program that taught me how to create great work under pressure. I particularly enjoyed the user experience design classes and would love to gain more experience in that field.
I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Japan for a few weeks during summer 2013. I stayed with a wonderful family that helped me practice my conversational skills and I learned even more than before about Japanese culture through classes and class trips.Winter 2015
Besides my previous duties as a Junior Designer, I took part in the hiring process of new graphic designers, web designers, and a copy editor that would be a great fit for the team. I also trained new graphic designers, oversaw their duties, and answered any questions they had.Jan – July 2015
My main focus in this role was to plan, analyze, and create visual solutions to attract large audiences to on-campus performances and events. I had the chance to work in an interdisciplinary team made up of graphic designers, web designers, photographers, and a copy editor. I learned a great deal about communicating efficiently with team members and clients.May – Dec 2014
I gave the Royal Exchange's website a complete makeover, taking it from an early 2000s look to a refreshing style sure to appeal to regular and new customers alike. I was in charge of the redesign as well as coding the website. View the new site.Aug – Sept 2014
Proposed and implemented clever ways to extend the brands of clients such as Safeway, OSH, and Michaels. I was lucky enough to be able to work on a great variety of projects from point of sale signage, to shopping bags, to emails and social media promotion (among many others). Speaking fluent French came in handy when working of a Michaels project for Canada. I was able to catch several spelling mistakes before the designs were released.Jan – Aug 2013
The Visual Communication program is constructed in a way that provides students with real-life experience by allowing them to work on client projects. I learned a great deal about both print and web design.Summer 2012
Provided print and web solutions to advertise on-campus programs and created signage to educate faculty, students, and visitors about steps Las Positas University took to make buildings LEED certified. This gave me the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients and taught me how to establish the scope of the work at the beginning of a project.Jan 2011 – Aug 2012
