Hello! I’m Leah.

I'm a product designer interested in communities, technology, and the built environment.

I use product design to meld technology and infrastructure in a way that empowers and engages people.

I'm currently working on civic engagement at Facebook to make a more open and connected world. Please get in touch any time!
