Hi! I'm Crystal.

Tatami Starbucks, Kyoto

I am a user experience designer with a background in life sciences and healthcare. I've worked as a facilitator of communication for customers at a healthcare clinic and volunteered my time assisting pediatric patients adjust to hospitalization. Since transitioning into design, my experience has powered my ability to listen, understand, and empathize with users to inform my design decisions. Balancing user needs with business goals, I create experiences that engage users with seamless and lovely design.

In my spare time, I enjoy practicing yoga in a too-hot room, learning about oolong steeping techniques, and reading about emerging technologies.
