I’m Dorna, a Product Designer here at Pantheon. As a designer, I partner closely with our engineers and product managers to figure out what our many different users need. I then help craft the look and feel of our tools. Prior to Pantheon, I was the lead designer for a HR startup in San Francisco. Before that, I made the transition to design after several years in customer-facing roles, including driver recruitment in the early days of Lyft.
A lot of my free time is spent on dance choreography, or on finding new music that I can mix for a future dance. My best friends and I have a Persian Dance Group that performed (pre-quarantine) a mixture of classical and modern Persian dance.
I also am an avid cook. My recent obsessions have been homemade pasta, focaccia, hummus, and pretty much anything else with carbs. Most recently, I’ve picked up gardening as a quarantine hobby. I’ve successfully harvested a bunch of heirloom tomatoes, as well as cayenne peppers and mint. My pipe dream has always been to host a cooking show on YouTube.
While I’m relatively new to working with Drupal and Wordpress, I’m excited to learn more about this fantastic community. Any tips and tricks would be much appreciated!
