My name is Michelle Tamir and I am a native Austinite attending the University of Texas as a design major. I hold a special interest in user experience and sustainable studies and design practices. I believe as a designer in being expressive, creative, and conscious when it comes to what I create, for myself and others. Both human and environmentally centered design allow me to achieve design goals through clever and innovative solutions. I have a strong passion for our environment, and an interest in designing for our world. As a consequence, I not only enjoy user experience design, but also product design and landscape architecture that emphasizes natural materials and environmental perspectives. Aside from designing, I am an avid fiction reader, gamer, yogi, and powerlifter.
