Hello, I'm a Social Designer working on projects that promote social growth and fight for social justice. I have developed a practice called 're-authoring design' that approaches community work through storytelling and collaborative making. This comes from an interest in the intimate and creative experiences that happens through co-design and their ability to encourage growth in challenging situations. I see co-design as a place for mutual learning and collective action, It is exciting to connect with local knowledge and practice while offering my own experiences in object, spatial and system design, illustration, research and woodworking.
