Roxanne is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary Designer and Tech Educator on a mission to build technology that is beautiful and poetic, delightful, loving, and kind. Her work has won awards and been featured in Fast Company.
She co-founded Comforts of Home, with a vision to design thoughtful goods for the home, inspired by the cultural intersections of her Philippine diaspora, living in New York, and all that's shaped her in between.
She also likes to write poetry and make art with code, and design adventures around the world.
When Rox approaches a problem, she has the unique ability to ask incisive questions about our users' experience and needs, and she always takes the time to make sure her understanding is well-founded before moving to proposing a solution.
For us as an organization that focuses on helping marginalized communities, this is especially important.
Simply relying on "industry standard" approaches won't work when the "industry" has historically not spent much time thinking about equity.
Centering empathy in our design approach, as Rox naturally does so well, is essential.
