I'm Michael, an SF-based designer, Cal alum, and obsessive coffee consumer.
I’m currently at Elephant, making cool stuff with the coolest people. Previously, I was at Mercari as a product design intern and before that, I was pipetting solutions day in and day out.
My journey into design started with a fascination by systems at large and understanding the why and how of everyday interactions. This probably explains why I am a biologist. But I also consider myself a social scientist, curious about the anomalies of human behavior, and the ways in which we feel, react, and respond to digital technology.
Obsessed with mesmerizing visuals and performant systems, I design and strategize for real people to create seamless, humanistic experiences.
