I’m a designer based in New York¹ working intimately with partners and teams across digital, print and environments, with interests in holistic approaches to design involving ecology and sustainability, multiplicity, disorientation, the de-centering of colonial powers and capitalist systems. Currently developing projects with J̲e̲e̲m̲i̲n̲ ̲S̲h̲i̲m̲, S̲O̲W̲, and preparing to pursue an MFA at Yale School of Art². Thanks to Jeemin for continual collaboration and insight.

The lands I’ve lived within hold the stories of generations of Indigenous communities violently displaced by European colonists.
