I am a cross-functional UX Designer with a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and a background in Engineering. I have over 5 years of experience working as the sole in-house UX Designer at various companies and implementing a data-driven, user-centered design thinking process in the workplace.
I have worked at all levels of design, from user research and discovery to ideation and rapid prototyping to usability testing and developer hand-off. I have experience designing products for both private and public sectors. I am currently based in Toronto, Canada.
I own all aspects of the design process from start to finish and work in an agile design environment. I have experience designing applications from consumer facing to internal tools using design research methods such as conducting exploratory interviews, problem framing, wireframing, rapid prototyping and usability testing. I have used tools such as Figma, Sketch, InVision, Balsamiq, Post-it notes, Marvel App and Photoshop.
I am always excited about creating new products that people will love to use. I have experience working in scrum/agile methodology to design and build projects from the ground up with a focus in user-centered design thinking.
I am passionate about understanding customer needs and solving problems through data-driven design thinking. With a Masters of Applied Science in HCI from Carleton University, I enjoy doing everything from design research to creating user personas and feature requirements. I have experience conducting usability tests as well as designing and running user experiments.
