MY STORY

Always learning and serving others

Before embarking on a career in Product Design, I was a program specialist at Service Canada where I proudly served Canadians. Although not a traditionally creative position, I discovered my interest in design there while volunteering on the social committee creating event posters. From there I made the most significant pivot in my career to pursue design. Since then, I have discovered user experience design as a way to combine my passion for helping others while being creative.

Since entering design, I have constantly strive to be better at my craft. From keeping up-do-date with the latest design principles to collaborating with talented professionals, I turn any moment into a learning opportunity. I welcome feedback to improve as a designer so that I can create for others while exceeding business goals.

Outside nine-to-five.

When I’m not creating designs for digital products, I frequently freelance for Clean Eating Magazine, contributing to their art direction and layout in each issue. Other times, I am creating personalized wedding favour packages or illustrative handlettering to exercise other parts of my creativity.  

Design aside, I love to spend time with my family, traveling and hiking, while capturing the ordinary moments. During the summertime in Toronto, you can catch me munching on ‘small eats’ on the sidewalk or heading to a street festival.
