Leanne is an art director with a background in Digital Project Management. She has worked in advertising for over six years with a focus on creating native content for digital platforms.
Seeing just how much new technologies have changed how people interact with each other and the world around them sparked her interest in studying interaction design full time. These technologies help people, but they also leave so many others behind. She hopes to design products and services that are inclusive of marginalized communities and areas that have been overlooked.
Leanne grew up in Dublin, Ireland where she earned a bachelor’s degree in International Commerce and a love for a good cup of tea. She has been living in Brooklyn since 2012 where she enjoys reading dystopian novels, drawing cartoons, and attempting to keep up with the endless food the city has to offer.
