So a little bit more about Wynnie.
Raised in a world that intersected between textiles, electrical engineering, and a 50-acre cow farm 🐮, tinkering, handiwork, and making objects out of odds + ends were things that have shaped who I am as a designer and researcher today.

I am insatiably curious 🔎.
You will always find me asking questions, trying to understand the underlying layers of a person's experience. I also enjoy taking things apart to study how the pieces connect and work together. 

I am adventurous 
To tinker and explore the land of ambiguity and unknown is my jam, especially when it comes to merging technology and design.  

I am very tactile and hands-on
I am the most inspired when I touch and make things. I am an advocate for paper prototyping when possible.

I get excited and will thrive in teams that value:
research, creativity, openness, mentorship, and flexibility.

When I am not geeking out in design or reading research papers...
You will find me perfecting the coffee crema on my espresso, enjoying dad jokes, and chilling with Bork, my 90lb. german shepherd. He will lick your face off
