Hi, I'm Malia. 👋🏽
As a lover of all things related to design, I specifically love designing technology products that enhance human existence, by connecting us with people and new ways of experiencing the world.
I'm currently based in Los Angeles, CA designing software that helps people be curious at SurveyMonkey. Previously, I spent my time designing technology for people and their pets at Whistle.
To me, being a designer means possessing an insatiable curiosity about how things work and why things work the way they do. Design is also about figuring out how things can work even better than they do, in the most simple and beautiful way. I love the energy in hives of creative people - bringing new ideas out of our hearts and brains, and making them practical for others to use.
When I'm not designing, you can find me reading, photographing with one of my beloved film cameras, exploring urban environments, or trying out new things in my kitchen. I also love to teach people about UX and design thinking at General Assembly and through volunteer work with organizations such as Inneract Project.
