I am a cognitive scientist, tea fanatic, and creative crafter of experiences. I have experience doing research with people of all walks of life, from survivors, to executives, to engineers, among others. I have also had the amazing privilege of teaching English abroad in Ecuador, to both executives, and the outer-city youth of Quito. Currently, I am a design research strategist on the User Experience Research team at Facebook. Before joining Facebook, I was a Lead Design Researcher at Cisco Systems, focused on humanizing Cisco’s award-winning enterprise and mid-market collaboration infrastructure systems.
