(the letter A)

HEY THERE!

I'm a human-centered designer, UX researcher, climate organizer and anthropologist passionate about building equitable, sustainable energy and transportation futures in my East Bay community.


NOW: SUMMER 2021

I'm focused on creating positive change in my East Bay community through climate advocacy with 350 Bay Area (Mobilizing Team, Clean Energy Policy Action Squad, and 350BAA Board of Directors) and Climate Reality Project (El Cerrito Building Electrification policy researcher). I also enjoy experimenting with music creation, reading and promoting local art projects as Chair of the El Cerrito Arts and Culture Commission. I'm also building my consulting practice to support design and innovation projects for sustainabilty- and transportation-focused organizations.
