My Passions 💖

In my spare time, I do art commissions (see more in my ART section). I love drawing people! 

I also sing, play the violin and I am teaching myself playing the piano. My favorite artist is Lana Del Rey.

My favorite sport is skiing. I also enjoy watching football, basketball, and baseball games. Go Huskies!

Nice to Meet You~  

My name is Melody and I'm an Associate Product Designer designing enterprise tools at Disney Streaming Services.  I received my Bachelor of Science at the University of Washington, where I studied Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) and focused on the Human-Computer Interaction branch.

My interest in UX stems from my passion for creation and solving people problems. I love to draw, brainstorm ideas and design delightful, inclusive experiences that put people first. I enjoy making things, seeing ideas come to life, and bringing a positive impact through innovation and problem-solving. 

My degree in engineering helped me to understand what is necessary for building a real-world product. Through the lens that HCDE provided me, I was able to see the gap between design and engineering, and create solutions using both problem-solving skills and delicate visual crafts. I hope to use design as a tool to create change and tackle some of the most complex problems existing in our systems today.
