I am a native Texan with Italian roots currently living in Austin. I’ve also lived up and down the East Coast from Savannah, Georgia to Manhattan and back. I began my formal design career in architecture, embedding myself in the practice of systems thinking. From 3D modeling and material design to site planning and construction considerations, I learned how to craft an experience at all levels. During my graduate studies, I focused on rapid ethnography, idea generation and execution, managing design processes, and user-centered product design.
Throughout my projects, the recurring themes of how people react to the physical, technological and societal forces around them interests me most. Whether I am designing ephemeral spaces to revitalize urban areas or creating an interface for a computer vision product, I always focus on designing for user-centered goals at every level of interaction.
