How did I get here?

My path to UX design started with conceptual and media art, which has been my passion since university. It's a great way to use critical thinking, solve unique theoretical problems, and create memorable experiences for people.

It's not a great way to help people achieve their goals. So in 2016, I started practicing graphic design by crafting print and digital material for a theater project. I liked applying my skills to solve a need, so I began helping small businesses express their values and connect with their audience. Freelancing helps me stay curious about people, design tools, and business needs, and it made me want to learn more about UX and Product design. I gained skills in UX research and testing processes, rapid prototyping, interaction design, and the basics of web development at CareerFoundry.

Product design lets me be curious and creative in the service of people. It engages all the skills I have learned in my life: visual, technical, and soft.
