Graphic Designer, A/B Partners
Pawtucket, RI, USA
As a designer it's important to see beyond and actively unlearn eurocentric design ideologies. Which is why decolonization is core to my practice and how I move through the world. The culmination of my life experiences galvanized a dedication to creating change in marginalized communities most susceptible to environmental injustices food insecurity and sensory disruption as a result of post-colonial legacies and climate change. Currently I work at the nexus of people power and social justice as a Graphic Designer and Creative Strategist. It was from my experience transitioning from front-end work to back-end that I discovered the power of data where narrative gaps segregate the invisible from the visible. In my newfound pursuit to expand into the ever-evolving world of technical languages specifically Python and machine learning to merge with my love of design I am undertaking 17 weeks of intensive data analytics training through Data Science for All: Correlation One. Where I hope to leverage my understanding of how climate and food justice design interventions can benefit from data on gustatory and olfactory inequities and shifts in black and brown frontline communities.
