DESIGN RESEARCHER, TECH REPORTER, DIGITAL GENERALIST.

Hi, I'm Nat, and I live to design empathetic, meaningful experiences.

 

Everyone loves a good story and I love to tell them. I guide projects from research plan to deliverable, advocating for the end-user at every step using the endlessly adaptable toolkit of design research methods. Whether I'm communicating through the written word or the wireframe, I seek to bridge the gap between the human and the highly technical.

My work is motivated by my interest in creating a more equitable digital landscape. I'm in love with the advantages technology provides to serve diverse global populations with art, education, and healthcare.
