What did you do before Openbox?

I studied graphic design at Pratt Institute and then worked in advertising. Not long after I decided that I didn't want to be in advertising any more—I only want to design to help people, strengthen communities, and nurture society.

What do you like about the work you do?

Design can be applied to so many things. How do you make an experience better for people? That question can be answered a million times over. And it's a problem that is worked on by many. I like to work collaboratively because it means I get to learn from others—academics, practitioners, and people with lived experience from all walks of life. Design is the work of learning.

What does inclusivity mean to you?

When all people have a voice and the power to make decisions about their future.

When do you feel most like yourself?

When no one is watching.

I spend a lot of time thinking about...

My ancestors.
