After work, catch me climbing at Seattle Bouldering Project on Ranier Ave, or biking around town (major shout out to Taylor Sizemore & Good Weather for the sweet bike build).

At home, I enjoy watching K-dramas with my lovely partner and geeking out on my PS4 to unwind.

Studied Design under Western Washington University's Design BFA program. Prior to graduation, participated in workshop seminars with companies like Instrument, Civilization, and Blink UX.
