DIAS

Hi! I am a design leader based in Oakland, California. I'm currently leading brand and growth design as Executive Creative Director at Handshake. Previously, I led brand design at Grammarly and scaled the brand design team, systems, craft, and communications as they launched their enterprise business and grew their revenue from $43 million to over $250 million.

Before that, I was the first brand designer at Reddit where I built the first visual systems, libraries, principles, and creative directed their first major integrated campaigns and launches including their native app. I've worked with editorial teams and art-directed features Wired, Techcrunch, Yahoo News, and more.

I believe in leading with kindness and building with intention.

Over the past 14 years, I’ve worked with brands like Uber, Capgemini, Olympus, and Winnie Labs and currently advise early-stage founders at Blume Ventures and Sequoia India (now Peak XV Ventures) on design hiring, design systems, product, growth, brand design, and marketing.
