Hello! My name is Ashley and I’m an experience designer, teacher, and bartender! My background is in information and service design - I have an MFA in Information Design and Visualization from Northeastern University and a BFA in Graphic Design from Lesley College of Design. I love design thinking, participatory research methods, and collaborating with passionate, humble people.
I currently work at Skylight Digital, a civic technology consultancy helping government create human centered tools and services. I teach UX Design at Pratt and General Assembly, and Data Visualization at Parsons.
Before joining the Skylight team, I spent the last 4 years as a Co-Founder of JustFix.nyc. As our Design Director, I helped establish our community led development and co-design methods working with tenants and advocates across NYC to build data driven tools that fight displacement. I met my co-founders Georges and Dan as a Design Fellow in the Blue Ridge Labs 2015 Summer Fellowship, and before that was a UX designer at DockYard.
I love what I do, and I don't take myself too seriously.
