Hi! I'm Mari.

I'm a highly curious, data-driven product designer passionate about using empathetic and intentional design to drive meaningful change within my community.

📍 Currently looking for Full-Time UX design roles.
↘︎ Prev. @ Expedia, Boeing, Morning Brew, Housecall Pro.
🌸 UW Seattle Informatics & Japanese Alumni

📌 My Core Values

I like to say that my work is driven by my three (technically four) C's:

🧐 Curiosity

My curiosity leads me through the design and research process - I am always thinking about the why and how at every step of the way.

🤝 Collaboration

As a team lead and member, I believe it’s important to foster an open and honest environment - one where all perspectives are welcomed and encouraged.

🛠 Constructive Criticism

Feedback is imperative to design. I value the process of giving and receiving respectful and constructive feedback throughout the design process.
