My Story

Hi there! I’m Tammy, a product designer and illustrator, lover of jazz and loose leaf teas currently living in the Bay Area. I am particularly inspired by spaces where UX is applied to education, environmental sustainability, and public health.

As a student at the University of California, Berkeley, my thesis research explored, through ethnographic studies, how water sanitation and agricultural economic reforms impact women’s empowerment in Ghana. I also spent over two years conducting statistical analyses of endangered species conservation in Mozambique. Understanding how to define problems and sort through data in an end-to-end process have contributed significantly to helping me become a more observant and intentional designer.

I have two years of experience as a product designer with comfort designing and prototyping in Sketch, InVision, and the Adobe Suite. This past year, I worked at a high growth start up where my role included introducing a company rebrand and improving product-market fit through designing more thoughtful and accessible digital as well as physical interfaces.

I am currently looking for work! If you’re interested in connecting, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at tagu@berkeley.edu.
