Hi there—I'm Andy.
Currently a first-year graduate student at the School of Visual Arts studying Interaction Design, particularly interested in user experience & service design, design research and design strategy. Some of my favorite classes so far have been: Service Design, Physical Computing and Crafting User Experiences. I'm a storyteller, strategic thinker, experience crafter and sometimes tech pessimist. I'm passionate about designing tech that empowers people in their everyday lives.
My path has been winding like many interaction designers. Most recently, I was community operations manager at Spoon University, building the programs and tools through which we interact with our student community. Previously I was the events & marketing coordinator at Little Owl, editorial intern @Saveur, @FoodNetwork and @SeriousEats. I graduated from Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in 2014 with a BA in Journalism.
