We are all continuously learning. The way we learn reflects our culture and influences our future. I'm passionate about designing for learning through visual communications and tactile experiences.
1 + 1 = Squiggly utilizes the human-centered design process to address the needs of K-12 public school teachers and students in the classroom.

The world is full of visual learners with boundless curiosity. By teaching mathematical and scientific concepts in a visual way we can encourage creative explorations and interpretations. I developed visuals and models to teach geometry and illustrations to teach the natural environment.
