I love what I do! My world is full of design, and I like to surround myself with creative people, creative activities, creative hobbies, and technical endeavors. There is something exciting about facing new design challenges, whether just for fun, or for work related projects. UX Design encourages being able to continuously grow and learn from experience with constant feedback.
My career has included digital and interactive design, as well as front-end web development. This background helps me to understand the importance of UX Design from initial ideation, to planning, prototyping, testing, and then implementation. I have also lead creative teams in collaboration with technical teams, so I have learned how communication is key to keep projects moving forward!
