Hi! πŸ–Œ My name is Melanie,  

UX/UI designer in San Francisco, California. I am a natural researcher, visual artist, and empath. I use my skills and creativity to find out what makes people tick.

Since I spent most of my life working as a creative in community and educational settings I use a great deal of my skills to make designs that pay attention to what people learn and how they can access it best.

Current work in progress:

πŸ‘©πŸ½‍πŸŽ“ Creating an app for special education teachers to assist in tracking and assessing student data with a volunteer led team on Code for San Francisco.  

🚲 Adding a control interface to an augmented reality experience for a 3D urban planning tool for government transit planning professionals and community advocates, again with a volunteer led team on Code for San Francisco. 

β›Έ Surveying roller skaters to create an app to set and track personal fitness goals and find skater locations and social events.

I can add value to teams designing for social responsibility and impact. For more about my professional expertise, check out my
