I'm Abby Golfo. My goal is to positively impact people’s lives by meeting people where they are.

I'm a designer and researcher dedicated to building impactful digital products. I'm super interested in understanding how people move through their worlds and I love working within multidisciplinary teams so we can ask, learn, and iterate together.

Born in the Bronx to two immigrants from the Philippines and raised in Westchester County, New York, I'm motivated by the people and stories around me.

My passion for storytelling and social justice motivated me to study journalism and sociology in undergrad, in addition to making videos and posters for human rights and activism-focused organizations.

I currently live in Buffalo, New York, where I am a UX Designer at M&T Bank. At M&T, I largely focus on research and insights. I have a master’s degree in Digital Media from Georgia Tech and bachelor’s degrees in Communication and Sociology from SUNY Geneseo. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
