Rachel is a designer and occasional photographer and writer living and working in New York City. All her life, she has been fascinated by human communication in all its forms — emotional, physical, verbal, and visual. Her pursuit of these interests has led her through work experiences in the United Nations, higher education, and the fine and performing arts. Ultimately, she developed a passion for Interaction Design, a discipline into which she is thrilled to be delving more deeply during her graduate study.
Even in formidable circumstances, we are offered the opportunity for profound change through our interactions with our environments, fellow humans, or the technology entwined in our daily lives. Rachel is especially fascinated with the power inherent in these moments and plans to spend her time working to improve the lives and experiences of others, especially the most vulnerable in our society.
In her spare time, Rachel loves making music with friends, contemplating the wonders of the universe, and discovering amazing food and people in this remarkable city.
