Hi there, I'm Kirsten-
a product designer, storyteller,
and creative strategist.

As a human-centered designer, I enjoy tackling complex problems through user-focused solutions that express the product’s unique capabilities and personalities. Living in the Philippines, Hong Kong, and New York instilled in me the values of different perspectives and inclusive collaboration. I believe that impactful designs are achieved alongside genuine empathy and authentic relationships.

I received my master's in Product Design from Parsons x Cornell Tech and hold a BBA in Strategic Design and Management with a minor in Graphic Design. Previous experience in marketing exposed me to the importance of understanding people's behavior and thought processes. Together with my love for crafting meaningful interactions, I found my passion for UI and UX design!

This gives me a unique approach to building research-driven products that add value to business and, most importantly, positively impact people’s lives. 

I VALUE

active listening,

supportive and collaborative teams,

staying open-minded and curious,

and keeping the user’s needs at the heart of design.

I AIM TO

design impactful solutions,

build meaningful connections,

be part of a diverse and inclusive work environment,

and grow my skill set!

I ENJOY

cooking while listening to a fun podcast
— some favorites: Stuff You Should Know, Modern Love, and Normal Gossip,

hosting themed dinners for my friends,

visiting my community garden on the weekends,

and attempting to solve the NYT Crossword.

I would love to connect with you!
