Hi! My name is Khayeni and I’m a multidisciplinary designer with a background in UX/UI and branding. I have spent most of my life growing up in New Jersey and living in New York City (with a few stints abroad).
I have worked as an integrative designer focusing closely on digital and interface design over the past 10 years. More recently, I have worked in the tech industry and have developed a keen interest in product and the blockchain industry. 
I am deeply passionate about social justice, human rights, and travel.
