I've spent the last 5 years focused mostly on the design of the digital world. In addition to my artistic and technical skillset, I try to operate with a heightened sense of curiosity and a healthy amount of sarcasm. Some might consider me a UI/UX designer, graphic designer, interaction designer, product designer, design director – just depends on the day.
My passion is using design to answer questions and solve problems for all people – regardless of their gender, race, status or abilities.
I believe that design has the power to shape the world around us, how we perceive it, how we interact with it and how we can change it.
Design shapes our world. As a designer, that power and opportunity comes with the responsibility to make it better. Whether it’s a digital experience, brand or space, I’m committed to valuable, genuine and positive change through design – for everyone.
I’m not into stoicism. And I’m not about coming off as a cool, nonchalant designer. Some day everything – including me – will be nothing but a memory, so I might as well spend my days doing things I really care about with people and brands I care about.
We won’t get far without mutual respect and honesty. As individuals and team members, we should value our humanity as much as our skills. I believe in practicing transparency, accountability and grace in everything that I do.
That doesn’t mean stay greedy. I work hard to master skills as I pick them up, but I’m always looking for ways to improve as a designer. Whether it’s through education or through meaningful connections, I never want to stop getting better.
No pun intended. Your "best" might differ day-to-day, but what matters is the effort. If I end the day knowing I did my best work with the tools I had, regardless of the result, I can consider it a good day.
All of them. I try to celebrate my wins – big or small – and you should, too. I know that I work hard, so I try to recognize my accomplishments and have fun once in a while. I want to be proud and appreciative of what I've done, even as I work to improve.
