I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, a place where experimentation is encouraged and the process is as important as the outcome. I’ve worked as a service designer and researcher at the Mayo Clinic Centre for Innovation. My projects there ranged from large strategic innovation processes to reference apps and the work I did there fuelled my love for complexity.
I’ve always been interested in working within a larger context, looking at how design interventions impact complex systems. This led me to a Masters in Design at the Oslo School or Architecture and Design, where I studied service design with a systems oriented approach. My thesis focused on the daily work of nursing home employees, trying to keep their perspective relevant in decision making processes. Whilst studying, I also worked at EGGS Design, as a part of their healthcare team.
For me, working at Livework means I get to be constantly surrounded by inspiring individuals, from co-workers, to clients and users. I’m a designer because I love to learn. It allows me work in new fields all the time. Here, I can do that with truly incredible people.
