I'm Marisa, a digital product designer and sunshine lover.
I design digital products that put people first. Most recently, I worked as a senior product designer at Etsy, helping buyers find unique and creative goods while supporting creative entrepreneurs. Before that I was at Zocdoc, reimagining the healthcare experience and helping patients find and book in-network care online. I took a 3-month break to travel and move to sunny Los Angeles, where I am now.
I'm inspired by new places, gardening, and paper collage. I put hot sauce on 96% of my meals and own more turtlenecks than I know what to do with in LA.
Designing consumer shopping experiences that keeps human connection at the heart of commerce.
Designing a healthcare experience that gives power to the patient.
I occasionally blog about my explorations and travels, but not as often as I’d like.
I like to share my favorite places, restaurants, coffee shops and places to visit. You can explore my recommendations for New York City, Mexico City, Tokyo, and Bali. I’m new to LA and would love to hear your favorites too!
