I am a nomad designer.
Since the age of 8, I have been actively designing various components for my own computer as well as my portable devices. Most of these changes had to do with how my software would work, whether it be quick commands, interactive new gestures, or brand new interfaces. Having lived in the US, Germany, France, Switzerland, and the UAE, I observed and learned people's behavior in each locale to better understand the problems people face.
While in High School, I began working in Nuclear Engineering Research at MIT, before writing for the National Newspaper of Abu Dhabi, and finally designing a portion of a iOS application for Converse. While at university, I worked on various projects ranging from creative hacks to start up projects that needed design work to better understand the problems that people face. Soon after, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a BS in Computer Science, and a specialization in Human-Computer Interaction.
Robert Pieta and I started our own company called ONENIGMA where we specialize in creating humanizing digital experiences. We believe that software and design should be created alongside each other to to create the best digital experiences that users love. Currently, we are based out of Chicago and love to discuss new projects that we can bring to life.
