I was born in Mobile, Alabama and grew up in Tennessee.

I got my start in design through drawing as a kid. In high school, my interest in drawing morphed into interests in graphic design and photography. In college, my passion for design In my business courses at Babson College I was introduced to “design thinking” as a method for creative problem-solving. I later cross-registered to neighboring Olin College where I studied and practiced design more intensely. In my final semester at Babson I planned and instructed a half-semester course on design called By Design. In August of 2016 I began my career as a Product Designer at Facebook on the Profile team.

Tidbits - Little Things Matter

2016
With Jared Silver, Jyotistka Biswas

Tidbits is helps you remember little things about the people who matter to you.

Tidbits was inspired by the realization that forgetting details about someone does not mean that you do not care about them, but remembering those things is a simple and powerful way to show that you do.

Tidbits is great for: meeting new people, starting school, joining a team, professional networking events, moving to a new city, or running a small business.
