About Me

Hey there!





I'm Mikaila, designer of experiences, crasher of drones and master of all things tedious.


I go deep into the weeds to understand the core problem in an experience and design, write and build creative solutions that don’t just serve the user but solve for the business need. I love solving problems that are big and messy. Nothing scares me.

I’m currently a Product Design Lead at Joymode in LA / CA, helping people make more room for joyful moments in their life (without having to fill their lives with more stuff).

I’m comfortable and confident doing any manner of screen-based design, but I’m passionate and excited about the potential of data-driven design, voice user interfaces, and circular design for sustainability. 

In my spare time I rip goals, race drones, train Muay Thai, skank at punk shows, and also sleep.
