Hi, I am Ani. Product Designer and Researcher.

A versatile product designer and researcher with a strong desire to understand problems, produce genuine experiences, manage products, and make a real difference in people lives.



I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I love to get outdoors, travel, play the drums, talk about sci-fi and history, hang out with friends and family, and read about design!


I studied Geography in undergrad and slowly transitioned into research and design roles from there. I've been working in the field for 3 years now, wrapped up an MS at Northwestern University, and am currently getting my MS in Human-Centered Design Engineering at the University of Washington.

Open to new opportunities!
