It's all about belonging

To belong is to be home, it's our relationships with one another - our social fabric.

I love the richness of complexity and possibilities in designing for belonging in a digital age. Not only do we want to feel at home when we're in-person together, but also online.

For me, belonging is an inexplicable yet familiar sensation of connection, love & joy. It's kinda like when you see a friend after time apart. Bringing belonging to digital experiences is my highest aspiration.
