โ€‹๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ NeYane Daniel โ€” Lead Product Designer at Reverb

โ€‹NeYane's earliest connection with design was a desire to make beautiful spaces and cars. While thatโ€™s evolved over time, she's been pleasantly surprised to contribute her creativity to the tech space, creating solutions for a range of industries including healthcare, food, retail, finance, cars, and now musical instruments. Beyond being a design professional, she's a movie and television lover, a serious tea drinker, and a bit of an unapologetic book hoarder.

โ€‹Fun fact:ย She's secretly an amazing whistler. She's always whistling way too hard and loudly to her favorite songs. It's honestly one of her favorite things about working from home.
