Amélie is a product designer(d) + writer based in Brooklyn, NY.
I’m a first-generation Jamaican-American born and raised in New York City. I currently work at The New York Times and have been consulting for the past 10 years.
In 2016, I was recognized by The White House as a Changemaker at the United State of Women Summit. In August 2016, I became a New York 2016 StartingBloc Fellow.
I have a few past lives, too. They include being a makeup artist, a photographer, and a certified holistic wellness coach.
Ultimately, I just want to make people smile and to make the world a better place, while encouraging everyone to be the best version of themselves.
What I’m up to these days…
I’m on a mission to become a design anthropologist and I’m currently in school, finishing up my bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies/Critical Theory and Analysis. I believe that the praxis of design anthropology is well-suited to the work of creating design systems and building products.
Shh, don’t tell.
I dream of one day getting into cosplay, but I’m lazy, so this is likely to never happen. Unless you want to partner up with me? 👀
