Product Designer
 

Hi, I’m Michelle — a growth-driven product designer, with affinities for all things Star Wars and musical theatre.

Currently on the hunt for my next design adventure.

Most recently, I was working alongside the most talented group of individuals at Reddit in San Francisco; redesigning user profiles and crafting new product experiences for Reddit Events and Reddit News.

Previously, I worked at eBay on the B2C Selling team, designing modern tools for, largely, legacy sellers, and freelanced through the Gigster network. Once upon a time and in another lifetime, I worked as an Archaeologist for little environmental consulting firm called Transcon in Berkeley.
