Designer, Traveler, Volunteer, and Baker.

I am Nalena Santiago, a Product/User Experience Designer, currently doing my masters in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. My passion for design started at a young age when I discovered the power of drawing. Today, I create experiences, through a user-focused iterative design and testing process.

After graduating from undergrad I worked at Habitat for Humanity and then served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay, in both positions I was able to serve others and do meaningful work. I truly believe that I can continue impacting others' lives in a positive manner through technology and design. (Portfolio was lovingly coded by me)
