Hello, I’m Karina.

I’m a student industrial designer at the University of Houston (c/o 2022). I am interested in designing products, systems, and services.

This past summer, I concluded an internship for Moku, a Hawaiian lifestyle brand led by an industrial designer who taught me to have a keen eye for aesthetics and sustainability. I designed jewelry, conducted materials research, and curated store displays. I am also an avid researcher with experience in Human Computer Interaction and Design History with Theory. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing with pugs, painting, or reading Plato.
