A picture of me

Hey, I'm Emelyn, a Product Designer based in San Francisco.

I like working with early stage start-ups to build products and teams from the ground up. My interests lie with data visualization, education, and cross-cultural product challenges.

I worked with Bloc to design the first version of its platform as the first designer. Later on, I led the team as design manager and lead. I'm currently working on product design at Brit + Co.

I'm employed full-time, but I'm accepting part-time freelance projects throughout 2017.
