Brooke

Kia ora, I'm Brooke. It's nice to meet you!

I'm a Digital Product Designer from New Zealand living in Los Angeles, where I work at Numerade, an education startup.

Captivated by innovative and ground-breaking experiences, I believe the combination of design and technology can provide a meaningful impact.

An Americano in my hand and I'm ready for any challenge.

A few random facts about me. I love butter & marmite on toast, going on rewarding hikes in national parks and cooking up new recipes. 

As someone who loves to keep busy - I'm currently getting my certification in JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures for fun and recently started a podcast with my good friend Kristina (you can find a link to it in the footer).

 

In college I was a D1 athlete on the women's golf team and my favorite place I've been to so far in the U.S. is Jackson, Wyoming.
