About / JFDI
A very talented photographer once told me, "If you don't know how to do something, just figure out how and go do it." I can't think of anything about making that is more simple or true, and it completely encapsulates how I got into design.
I in no way come from a traditional art background. I jumped into the world of art and design when I took a semester off during my junior year of Wharton undergrad. During that time I had a ton of fun exploring: shot a campaign for a nonprofit in Ethiopia, produced a photo essay for an awesome startup, shot at NYFW, and interned at foursquare where my incredible manager tasked me with redesigning the foursquare developer site. After that, I wrote an open letter to Instagram that went semi-viral, which introduced me to my amazing mentor at Path, who I interned with. I then peaced from b-school and have been designing at Dropbox ever since.
I just love telling stories and basically want to spend my life communicating these things to other people. Letters in particular are incredibly poetic, and I could spend all day drawing type. But really, there is no master plan other than to happily do what I love, and never stop exploring.
