Hi there! I'm Melinda :)

Melinda FilonukI'm a New Jersey-based creative who is passionate about design and purchasing all those nerdy things my parents said I would grow out of. My house is totally a shrine to all things nerd culture, Star Wars wall included.

I care deeply about creating thoughtfully-crafted, functional products. I believe that if you are going to do something you should put your whole heart into it. As a product designer, I champion that products must be built for the people who use them, designed with the intention to improve their lives, and structurally built to last.

As a team lead, I believe heavily in providing opportunities to younger people. I believe that it takes only one person's kindness to give someone an opportunity that can change their whole life for the better. I strive to be a mentor and a friend towards my team, rather than a boss.

In my spare time, you can find me tending to my many plants, reading comics with my cats, or taking my son on adventures.
