🇵🇪 I’ve started a small project to accompany my journey of cultural reconnection → PERUANX

Creative methodology

Designers are uniquely positioned to influence people’s lives and shape society. Therefore, good design must be responsible and thoughtful. In creating user experiences, I focus on building accessible solutions crafted for long- term, positive social impact. I do this by leveraging UX research and driving deep cross-functional collaboration.

Causes I'm supporting

I believe I have a responsibility to promote and empower the people doing society's most impactful work. I'm privileged to be able to redirect 2% of my monthly income to an array of organizations whose work I value. Beginning in July 2022, 1% will go directly to abortion funds and organizations fighting for women's rights. Each month I choose the remaining 1% from a mix of the following:

Recently completed

Company of One → Lots to learn from this one about solopreneurship and individual skill growth. Nice read for the entrepreneurially-inclined.
Choose FI → Loved this podcast so was eager to check this out. Lots of valuable frameworks for thinking about personal finance.
Dollars and Sense → Great read about the psychology of money. Formatted as a series of brief, story-like case studies, each paired with an analysis of the character's financial decision-making.
