about me

Hi! I'm Gaby, a digital designer and content creator in the SF Bay Area. I graduated in 2018 from UCLA with a degree in Communication Studies and Digital Humanities. My social science research background has prepared me to evaluate the effects of technology on our society. This enables me to make better informed design decisions and focus on producing intentional technology.

As a designer, I strive to be involved in the process of building products or services that empower people to reach their own goals by utilizing empathy and design. I'm particularly interested in exploring intersectionality in education in terms of class, race, and disability. I hope to build experiences that bridge educational gaps by promoting information access and personalized learning practices.

I also enjoy working with other creators and artists to enhance their brand image and support them in growing their audience.
