PROJECT DESCRIPTION

I joined MARK Labs as an early stage startup bridging the financial tech and social impact spaces. In January of 2016, after the company joined Techstars accelerator program in London, I joined the team as their User Experience Design Lead. I worked closely with the team of 11 between DC and London to make progress on building a product that will link data to social impact, and facilitate organizations and funders being able to tell their stories better. A great mission, and one that's full of good challenges to work through.
