Nice to e-meet you! I’m Mylene.

 

I get excited about designing and creating things with social impact in mind. I like being interdisciplinary by thinking across boundaries though my experience starting a company, studying in school, and working in industry. So far I've tested the waters in project management, freelance UX/UI design, and strategic consulting— currently I'm exploring product management. 💻
