Nice to meet you!
I'm Kristen: a designer, empath, advocate, and life-long learner.
I approach every day with compassion, an open-mind, and a healthy dose of curiosity. I apply these same principles to my design process, with the intention of creating meaningful experiences for all. I enjoy crafting solutions for real problems and would rather focus on how or why a solution might work, rather than why it won't.
My background in human rights and advocacy fuels my belief that technology should be used to make the world a better place. I want to listen to understand, empower users to achieve their goals, and use storytelling to drive empathy.

settling in to a good book (any suggestions?)
