HELLO! I'm Rossa.

I’m currently working at Disney, creating magical web and mobile experiences for Disney Parks and Resorts. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Masters degree in Interaction Design. Recently, I was UX Design Intern at Microsoft.

Previously, I studied painting and graphic design at San Francisco Art Institute. I have experience in mentoring high school artists, designing web and marketing materials at a design agency and non-profit organization in South Africa. There I found my passion for designing experience to positively affect the world.

Because of my experiences, I've learned to bring empathy at every stage of the design process, and I believe this empathy is the foundation of a great design that appeals to, support and enables people. I like to advocate that design is not about pixel perfect, but about understanding what people are doing in the real world.

I’d love to hear from you!
