Through school and work, I have learned that design can be visual. Tactile. Practical. But what excites me most is when these qualities combine to make design instructive.


Social Physique Anxiety (SPA) is the self-consciousness about ones body in a social setting. Research on SPA as caused by the gym environment informed the design of Keelo, a system for educating and tracking the workout experience through an interface and updated equipment. The deliverable for this project is a standardized interface across selectorized weight machines. The more broad design goal is to lessen comparison and promote exercise motivated by health.


SumOne is a professional site intended to show more about an individual than their resume ever could. This site is the perfect marriage between the professionalism and networking found on LinkedIn and the individualism that drives every employer to a potential hire’s Facebook.

Thanks to Kimberly Newsum for her contribution to this project as well.

Audio Vision

Audio Vision is an Android Application developed to make household sounds visible to the deaf. Our project aim was to classify sounds so deaf users could be alerted when visual cues were unavailable. At the end of the ten-week session, we produced a working Android application capable of learning, classifying and visualizing sounds.

Social Phones

Social Phones aims to change phones from a social distraction to a way to meaningfully connect in person. Through the platform of news, Social Phone keeps people connected to the outside world by investing in the people around them.
