I facilitate cultural mediation using the tools of graphic design and human behavior. My focus is on working with diverse communities to understand their mediums of communication for the purpose of translating information both within and outside of their circles using human-centered design methodologies and principles of Anthropology.
I first study and learn about the communities where I work, which has permitted me to have an extensive range of communication strategies that are constantly transforming. Using these strategies, I provide two-way translations in order to effectively communicate areas of need and build capacity using familiar mediums of communication. I use design in working with low-literacy communities without a written language as well as with technologically advanced societies whose mediums of communication are ever-evolving.
