I love rapid prototyping, building new ventures, and meticulously curated playlists.

I thrive on sticky notes, what if questions, and interdisciplinary collaboration. My nickname at IDEO is K.dot, because I get straight to the point. I geek out over biometric interfaces, quirky typefaces, and intricate UX maps. The d.School is my happy place. I simplify complex systems into effortless experiences for humans. I’m part Designer. Part nerd. List-maker. Dreamer. 110% Doer.

A little bit more about me: I’m pretty clumsy, but I’m also an adrenaline junkie. Trail marathons, backcountry skiing, hiking 14ers solo — I live for the moments of feeling sweaty, sore, and humbled in the great outdoors. I have a weakness for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Eschew is my favorite word. I’m currently reading Being Mortal. Bringing people together is my passion.
