Hi, I’m Hannah! I create products and organizations that empower people.

I founded two award-winning organizations. At Sproutel, I created products to bring joy & comfort to children in healthcare. At Design for America, I built a network of design innovators in social impact.

My creative process is rooted in understanding people. I take pride in building processes where product and design development center around people and their core values. As a people-first design leader, I put the utmost priority on building trusted relationships with people whom I work with and design for.

Here are the products I created.

I advise companies and organizations.

I advise nonprofits in creating community-centered strategies and mentor startup founders in business and product design.

I teach design and mentor students.

I give lectures, run workshops, and teach studio classes on design research, entrepreneurship, and human-centered design.

I write and illustrate.

I’m currently working on a couple of children’s book projects – inching my way to becoming a published author/illustrator!

Interested in working together?

Let’s chat!
