Hello world. I'm Koi, a creative problem solver.

Thank you for dropping by. I'm currently working at AARP Innovation Labs, as a Design Thinker. As a Design Thinker, I have the opportunity to influence the organization's culture of innovation by providing instructional workshops and design sprints that help shape ideas. I also work with startups, providing consulting services to help them shape their product to AARP's market. 

I studied graphic design at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, where I honed my visual communication skills. After graduation in 2012, I started my career as a Graphic Designer for various companies and freelance opportunities. After completing and graduating from the General Assembly's User Experience Design program—I transitioned my career from being a traditional Graphic Designer to the human-centered design expert that I am today. 

I have a love and interest in research to understand the consumer's needs and goals. I enjoy the process of marrying my skills as a graphic designer and researcher to create the right solutions for my clients.
