Audrey is a designer and creative technologist currently based in the Washington, DC area. She graduated summa cum laude from American University, where she earned a BA in two multidisciplinary majors, including a self-developed major program. With a prior background in philosophy, economics, and the biological sciences, she believes in a discipline-agnostic approach to problem-solving, adapting various frameworks, mental models, and ways of working to suit the unique needs of each challenge she encounters. She believes that artists and designers must leverage their talents to bring about lasting, positive change in our societies and the world.

Having previously focused on visual design and UX strategy at Butchershop and human-centered AI systems and interfaces at Polytopal, she is now a designer at January Third. For freelance inquiries or any other questions, please reach out.
