Hi! I’m Eliza. I’m a UX designer living in Washington, DC.


I care a lot about “why?” and “how?” products are made. To me, good design transcends visual aesthetics to answer those questions. I believe in intentional function and beautiful form that are crafted after listening and hearing.

I identify and design for the sweet spot
between user and business needs.

I am an anthropologist by training and a designer by doing. I understand that human behaviors in action are fascinatingly contradictory. And from an organizational perspective—as much as we think we understand our own products, services and users—we often have our noses deep in our own work and lives, making it difficult to see the forest from the trees. 🌲

Hearing is listening to what is said. Listening is hearing what isn’t said.
- Simon Sinek

I often identify themes and details that others miss. I do this by actively listening. I am able to sift through the noise to identify the sometimes unsaid, often unknown middle ground between user and business needs that are critical to product and service success.
