My profound empathy for others is what compels me to design experiences that bring people boundless value and delight. Let's build something together.

In my free time, you can catch me playing Animal Crossing or Overwatch, taking myself out on movie dates, or curating my dreams on Pinterest boards!

Hi there, my name Jah! I’m an ambitious product designer based out of the Central Valley of California. I studied Human-Computer Interaction at UC Berkeley, and my curriculum consisted primarily of courses from the Graduate School of Information. My previous work includes interning at Smule, a social singing platform, and designing for non-profits such as The AI Education Project and Central Valley Scholars. For as long as I’ve lived, I’ve been defined by my curiosity and perpetual inspiration to create. I’m always hungry to innovate and develop meaningful ideas.

As a first-generation Black queer, I often think about my role and impact in design. As I reflect on this, I feel as if there are communities not represented enough, whether that be actual designers themselves or the communities that are being focused on and included in research. This ignites a flame in me to bring representation and visibility to marginalized communities in the design space. Ultimately, it is my mission to use the power of technology to lead by example, inspire, and educate those often blocked by institutional barriers and a digital divide.

What makes me happy :)
