About me in 10 seconds

Hi. I'm Rachel! I'm a self-taught Senior Product Designer, YouTuber, Webflow Developer, Entrepreneur. I'm many things, but above all, I'm a storyteller.

I work as a Senior Product Designer. In May 2021, my YouTube channel was launched - since then it grew to 65K+ subscribers.

I advocate for no-code tools and believe in becoming 1% better every day. I aspire to bootstrap my own company and impact 1B people by making design education accessible to all.
