Why design? 

I wanted a career that would allow me to serve others. I tried a few things here and there before I found my place in design. To me, designing is always an act of service which brings me much much joy. 

A user defender is born 

Inspired by the amazing Jason Ogle, I decided to push myself every day so that I could become a user defender.  My goal is to be a good team player who fights hard to defend the users who fall victim to a lack of understanding, bad decisions, and poor implementations. My design approach is respect, comprehension, inclusion and boldness.

My superpowers

Problem scoping, empathy, and storytelling.

Right now

I recently finished my master's degree in Information with a focus on Human-computer, and UX research and design.  During my second year, I developed some front-end skills and practiced agile methodologies. I'm currently looking for my next adventure.
