I am an interaction and visual designer from Atlanta, Georgia. After I received my Bachelors degree in Graphic Design from Savannah College of Art and Design, I moved to San Diego, California where I currently work at HP as an interaction and visual designer. As an up and coming designer, I have placed in hackathons put on by companies and institutions such as IDEO, SCAD, and MIT that have solved for issues ranging from the wealth inequality in the music industry to federal socio-economic injustice.
As a design activist, I recently organized a free and accessible virtual conference called “Where are the Black designers?” that highlighted and brought awareness to allies within the creative and tech industry about the experiences and struggles of being a black designer within the field. I hope to use the platform to support, empower, and amplify black designers throughout their career and help them create their own narrative by connecting them with the established legacy of the black design community, creating a hub of empowering and educational resources, and establishing inclusive spaces within the tech and creative field.
