Hi, I am Carmen and I am a design researcher and social innovator with the heart of an artist. I use my skills in visual communication, design thinking, and ethnographic research towards creating services and products that are accessible and have a positive impact on our communities. 

 

"All we have to do is to listen to the people that we are supposed assist, to make them part of the decision-making process."
