I believe that design and content need to be:

a catalyst for social change, accessible for all, and sensitive to cultural and historical context. But advocacy doesn't exist in a vacuum. I would love to hear what you are fighting for.

My Approach and Services

We make the most sustainable impact when we combine participatory design and community building in our digital strategy. I apply distributed organizing and intersectionality methodologies in all of my work. My goal is to center the needs and expertise of community members that are closest to the problem and solution.

Personal Project

In an effort to make machine learning more accessible, I'm attempting to train neural networks American Sign Language using ML5. 


In reaction to the current immigration policies, I'm working on a series of wearable tech to explore the weight carried by undocumented immigrants in their journey traveling to the United States—what they brought along and what they left behind. 

The audio file consists of stories and sounds that evoke memories of home for the narrator. GPS can be turned on or off in case of ICE raids, arrests, deportation, and detention. GPS location report will be sent to the narrator’s listed emergency contact(s) to notify partners, family members, and/or friends of their whereabouts. 

Material: Fabric, threads, GPS tracker, MP3 audio
