Hi, I'm Remy Davison

I'm a senior studying design at Carnegie Mellon University, with a concentration in communication design. I also have extensive experience in writing and front-end development. Currently, I’m working on UI/UX design and design research for LearnSphere, part of CMU's Human-Computer Interaction Institute.

My particular area of interest is design that advances humanitarian causes, social betterment, and facilitates storytelling across divides that are often difficult to navigate. I was the first recipient of the Victor Ng Design Impact Award for my project My Gay Love is Holy: stories from LGBT people of faith. I also worked on UX Design and content production for the CMU Computer Science Academy (a project whose goal is to give high school students quality, accessible, and free Computer Science education), and was a mentor for Boundary Street, a poetry collaboration between CMU's Creative Writing Department and CAPA (Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School high school).

I'm also minoring in creative writing. I work on both personal writing projects, and contribute freelance content to online publications. Once, I was even published in Chicken Soup for the Soul. Beyond that, I'm an active member of Scotch'n'Soda Theatre. With them, I’ve done everything, including publicity, choreography, acting, web design, and costumes.

You can contact me via email or LinkedIn.

(I'm also known as Ren on some platforms.)
