My pronouns are they/them. 🏳️🌈
By day, I’m a UX designer who specializes in user research and accessibility. I believe that access to technology is a human right.
Design and technology tie directly to ethics and oppression, and I write about it whenever I can. Check out my Medium for more.
I practice martial arts as a tool of resistance and healing - specifically Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kali/Eskrima, and Boxing.
Access Guide helps you make accessible products and websites. ♿️
Accessibility is the process of removing barriers to meet people’s needs, with a focus on the needs of disabled people. I believe that an accessible product is as essential as an entrance with a ramp, and yet the digital world is littered with inaccessible products.
But it’s not that easy to be accessible - tech teams have it hard with limited time, resources, and knowledge. That’s why I’m creating a tool that provides an introduction to accessibility that’s exciting and understandable instead of dense and overwhelming.
Access Guide is my main side hustle outside of my day job. I am working with a rad group of people to bring you some rad resources. Interested in learning more? Check out this info packet and github repo.
Art & Collaboration
I love and support my community of artists (especially queer artists of color)! These are some collaborations I’m lucky to be a part of. 🌸
Rebirth Garments is a wearables line for the full spectrum of gender, size, and ability. I’ve modeled for a number of shows and photoshoots, and designed a line of laser cut earrings with them. Check out their etsy! ✨
Sometimes I dress up as a drag king (Tofu Daddy) or a drag queen (Tofu Mama) as a fun way to explore gender, identity, and performance with the rest of Chicago’s queer nightlife. I’ve performed at Dyke March, Luya Poetry, and TRQPiTECA. 💁🏽♀️💁🏽♂️
