About me in 10 seconds

Hey! I'm Rachel, a Senior Product Designer & Solopreneur.

I create practical resources to help people expand their skills, get better at UI/UX design, diversify their income and become more productive, so we can all design a life we love.

As an immunocompromised INTJ-T individual, I (try my best to) live a minimal, intentional life while doing what I love: Design delightful digital experiences, create educational YouTube videos and become financially independent.

Think Less, Create More.
