As a designer, I am passionate about exploring the intersection of product design, platform design, and interface design. I have a deep-seated desire to solve complex problems, and thrive in collaborative environments where I can work with others to create high-quality software that embodies both craftsmanship and exceptional UI design.In my free time, I enjoy improving my cooking skills by trying out new recipes, as well as staying active through hiking, running, and weekend pickleball games.
My process is flexible and relies on the complexity of the project and problem at hand. Generally speaking, the digram represented below showcases my process.
Many people have a story of how they found design. Each persons story is unique to them and interesting its own way. Here’s my story so far.
