I turn concepts (and caffeine) into code.

Hi! I'm Mina, an Oakland-based design engineer. I write code for a living, currently as a Staff Engineer at Slack. My focus is on creating engaging & accessible digital experiences for humans.

I've been building stuff on the web for the last decade, creating some websites you may have seen. Previously at Hillary for America, my work on the Pantsuit pattern library has been spotlighted in WIRED, Forbes, Fast Company, and Communication Arts.

I speak at conferences worldwide, sharing my experience and expertise in a variety of topics such as design systems and CSS architecture.

Outside of work, I like ampersands, interior design, LEGOs, and the color pink. I graduated from Syracuse University with a dual major in Graphic Arts from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Women’s Studies.
