I am a Design Researcher and Strategist. I create solutions for social impact.

I apply human-centered design, sociology, and communications to define complex problems, discover user insights, and co-design holistic outcomes.

I always ask ‘WHY’

I use visualisation to tell stories

I listen and empathize
