Before she knew what design was, she was already a designer, spending countless hours figuring out how to improve a font, making books, clothing, how to make better use of an object, exploring techniques and materials and much more, hobbies she currently employs with the addition interactivity mainly making them insightful installations.
Her professional career includes Publishing of a bilingual newspaper, being an Art Director for a major brand at renowned retail stores, currently a web designer and front-end developer, and being a product designer. During the recent years of her career the environment has been the focus of her design, due to the fact that she spent close to ten years as a design manager and advocate of a public transit agency, where she drew further inspiration for her present installations.
