Della grew up with basketball as one of her most passionate interests. However, after not making the cut to the national basketball team, she realized that she needed to channel her passion into a different industry.

Rooted in her dream to design sports’ footwear, she flew to Los Angeles and pursued Product Design at Art Center College of Design. Her works have earned her IDSA, Core77, and A’ Design awards to name a few. During her time at Art Center, she recognized that there are many more beautiful objects to fall in love with outside of footwear.

Della has always been fueled with curiosity. She appreciates uncertainty, always pushing new boundaries and loves multicultural experience that enriches her life. She sees value in her ability to create functional design and meaningful human experience that changes the way people think, feel, and do.

She interned at Continuum Innovation Agency and Vans prior to moving to New York City where she joined PepsiCo as part of the Brand Experience Team with a goal to elevate the customer experience. Three years later, she decided to move back to LA and worked for NVE Experiential Agency on Brand Activation and Influencer Packaging.

Currently based in Seattle, she's working for Amazon Devices CX Lab, designing end-to-end customer experiences across physical channels like in-store experiences, displays, and retail environment.

In her downtime, you can find her doing pottery wheeling, netflix-ing, and waiting for someone to challenge her in a basketball arcade game.
