Hi, I'm Dorcas!

(sounds like door-kiss)

I'm an environments designer interested in the integration of creative and civic technology as a platform to better serve communities at scale.

Whether it's rethinking how we approach data privacy or designing social systems that foster meaningful engagement, I enjoy thinking through complex problems to better shape and share my interpretation of our built environment.

My philosophy is guided by the belief that my work is only as strong as its connection to people, so I create in hopes of speaking to the value of the intrinsic emotions and impulses in which we find common ground, differences, and all the wonderful aspects that make us human.

Currently, I'm a rising junior in the Environments track at Carnegie Mellon's School of Design with an additional minor in Cybersecurity and International Conflict.
