Hi, I'm Noel. I am passionate about making complex information approachable, understandable, and memorable.
My work crosses disciplines and media and meets at the intersection of design, education, technology, and social impact. I love asking questions and working with others to figure out the answers. How can tracking moods lead to improved mental health? How can grassroots organizing rally communities and create change? How can innovative curriculum inspire the next generation of design leaders?
Asking the right questions leads to meaningful answers—ones that impact people, products, systems, and the world. This is what excites me most and shapes how I think, teach, and make.
I am currently Adjunct Faculty at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a Mentor at DesignLab, and a Product Designer at Mokriya—a user-centered software studio based in Cupertino.
