Hi, it's Rachel //

I'm a multidisciplinary designer, sketcher, and builder of  interfaces, tools, systems, and experiences.

Curiosity Driven

I'm deeply inquisitive and not afraid of diving into the ambiguity, playing with ideas, and asking really complex questions.

Knowledge Translator

I'm invested in translating and communicating knowledge across disciplines, audience, & technical boundaries.

Future Oriented

I believe in the power of speculative design  to connect future visions into something that contributes to today.
