Sup, I'm Martha.
My hobbies include learning about things and playing with problems. I’m fueled by creativity with a giant helping of curiosity.
That creativity brought me to animation in college, and curiosity led me to media exploration. Being part of different projects ranging from video games to short films as a digital designer for the past 4 years, I found that I really enjoyed creative collaboration and storytelling.

My favorite animation project :)
I was a lead animator for this short film with Sony Animation and Mitu

Transitioning to Product Design felt so natural. It combined everything I enjoyed about digital design and animation in creativity, storytelling, and collaboration with intense problem-solving and communication. I also love that as a designer, my work can be used to help people in the real world. I do still draw sometimes.
I'm currently at Firstbase as a Product Designer, working closely with folks across many teams from engineering and product to customer experience, sales, and operations. When I'm not designing or learning about it, I'm probably playing my Nintendo Switch, exchanging memes with friends, or trying to train my gremlin-energy pup, Michi.
If you happen to be a UX/product design student or looking to land your first design job, I'm sending you good vibes! You got this. Feel free to get in touch, and let's chat!
