Hey! It's great to e-meet you.
I’m Angela, a UX designer and ice cream enthusiast. Originally from Seattle, I am a firm believer there’s a magic that happens when gathered around good coffee and great food that inspires the best conversation. My love for design all started in a graphic design class at Forest Ridge middle school, learning to make posters in Adobe Photoshop on a ThinkPad— my love for Lenovo products runs deep. My passions grew into a profession, and I graduated from SCAD with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in UX design in 2020. I have worked for Lenovo, interned with Microsoft, and participated in collaborations with Google, Volvo and AirBnB. My work has been recognized by the European Product Design Awards, Core77 Design Awards, Prototypes for Humanity, and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s R20 climate campaign. In addition to my professional skills as a designer, researcher, and usability tester, I am an avid cook, and a tech-savvy Gen-Zer.
As a UX Designer at Lenovo, my passions for accessibility, diversity, inclusivity, and sustainability are constant drivers and guides for my work. It’s my job to consider people from all cultural backgrounds and abilities. My customer centric and data driven work at Lenovo reaches customers around the world and in 2022 I received the UXD Software team award, acknowledging my accomplishments since joining the company in 2020. The work I am most proud of, however, is with ABLE, Lenovo’s disability advocacy employee resource group, A Better Lenovo for Everyone. As a co-lead of ABLE, I have helped to bring inclusive language coursework to Lenovo’s internal training program and improve accessibility during presentations and onboarding. I have also organized and hosted several exciting events such as XR Accessibility and project showcases with Lenovo’s Product Diversity Office. I have written and published several articles on topics such as invisible disabilities and how to make virtual meetings more accessible.

I am a mentor and tutor to university and high school students pursuing creative careers and occasionally guest lecture at my alma mater, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and mentor design competitions with their Future Leaders of UX (FLUX) club.
