After graduating from NYU I took what I knew about social entrepreneurship and digital marketing to help launch Tutonic, an ed-tech startup that connected tutors and students. There I learned what it took to develop and launch a product while delving into user research and working with our dev and design teams to ensure we met our users needs. The team decided to go its separate ways and I moved to Santiago, Chile where I improved my Spanish and taught english at a local high school. After returning back to NYC last Spring I jumped back into the Startup community by organizing the Brooklyn Tech Meetup. Now at Startup Institute I aim to transform my passion for Product and Design into a career in UX design and front-end development. I bring a a level headed demeanor, team oriented approach and UX oriented thought process everywhere I go.
