Welcome! I'm happy you're here.
I grew up in Utah and naturally fell in love with mountains—climbing them, biking them, snowboarding them—and the outdoors.
I studied nutrition science and communication studies as an undergraduate. Before that, I served a two-year volunteer service mission to the Netherlands where I learned the importance of being people-centered.
From there, I began working for a start-up crunching big data and optimizing advertising bid algorithms. Here, I became fascinated with the way individuals use technology and how one could integrate data into service design and other design niches.
My deep interest in design is rooted in decision making and behavior change; especially in relation to ethics, ethical fading, and judgement heuristics.

Currently, I'm studying a Masters of Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University.
