As a designer, I am constantly striving to create beautiful User Interfaces that are not only creative and original, but also engage the user at first glance. I currently specialize in responsive design and mobile optimization techniques. Designing icons, branding identities, concert posters and brochures are all included in my 7+ years of experience freelancing in design.
What is the primary goal of your website? Who is your target audience? These are the first two questions that should be asked at the beginning of any project. As a UX Designer, I create task-based user flows, storyboards, wireframes and interactive prototypes to guide development. My strong understanding of front-end technologies allows me to design interfaces that not only engage the user, but are also realistic to develop.
Information Architecture often necessitates considering the end user, and how they will interact with a web experience. I am able to develop conceptual and detailed wireframes (both interactive and static) to present to the client, designers and developers. By accounting for every possible screen and interaction, I ensure that the web experience has been tested before time is spent on design.
I love animals and volunteer my tech savvy-ness to help them wherever possible.
Whether it be old-school motown, new-age funk and soul or electro swing - I love listening to funky beats. I also do a mean Marvin Gaye at Karaoke.
I like getting my hands dirty. Painting in spare time always inspires me and helps me clear my mind. The use of colours and texture translates often into my designs.
I don't want to brag, but I'm pretty fun to have a beach day with! When not working in the summer - you're likely to find me at one of Vancouver's local beaches.
