Hello, I’m Karina!

I’m a designer currently pursuing a Master of Industrial Design (MID) degree at Georgia Tech. I recently graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design.

I define design as: “the ability to make deliberate decision(s) to change or create anything.” From this understanding, I find that my role as a designer is to apply that ability across realms of my interest: products, systems, services, and experiences.

I am also an avid researcher with experience in education, human-computer interaction, and design history with theory. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing with pugs, painting, or reading philosophy.
