I care about creating communication solutions that support curiosity💭, connection👯‍♀️, and discovery💥.

Currently, I’m a Design Lead Intern at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the Human-Centered Design Group. I’m also a 4th-year studying Communication Design and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I’ve worked at Illumination Entertainment and Stanford University.

With interests in visual, UX, and design strategy, I gravitate towards designing transmedia identity systems. I care deeply about the quality of interactions people have with tech—all the while harboring a love for print and tactile design.

I’m looking for full-time opportunities. Don’t hesitate to drop a hello at ertsai@andrew.cmu.edu!
