Naomi (she/they) is beginning their graduate studies at OCADU in Toronto, ON, working towards an Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media & Design. They graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC, completing a BDes with a major in Industrial Design and a minor in Social Practice and Community Engagement (SPACE). Naomi's work here has led to an interest in design practices that are engaged in social justice, equity, community building, and non-traditional modes of learning. Analogue material and craft practices hold a special place in their heart as a means of exploring embodied knowledge, skill sharing, and connections to place. 

Most recently, Naomi has been working for the Jewish Museum and Archives of BC, developing a project with Morgan Martino through the Satellite x DESIS Residency Program called Pocket Change, and are a part of a place-based design collective, the Roving Designers.
