Hi, I'm Tess.

I earned my Master’s in Interaction Design from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, and I am currently working as a staff product designer at the customer data platform Segment.

Previously, I was the first designer at digital film and advertising studio Portal A, and before that I was a production designer at Apple. Before that, I was a teenager, and prior to that, a baby. Let’s keep growing together.
