Be the person your dog thinks you are.
Good design is iterative, ethical, and collaborative through a partnership with clients and stakeholders; I understand their vision and bring user perspectives to build unique experiences. I put people at the heart of my process. I work to understand them and their motivations to serve their needs best.
Like many in my field, I came to UX and design on an indirect path, which helps me bring different experiences and perspectives to my work. More importantly, it helps me appreciate the vast diversity in viewpoints and life experiences that can benefit and affect my work.
After finishing my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art, I moved abroad and began to see the world. I taught English as a Second Language in Italy, where I spent time getting to know the people and culture (and even a little bit of the language!)
After a couple of years in Italy, I moved to the beautiful Bavarian city of Munich to help businesses in Germany communicate in English. Some of my highlights were;
- Touring the BMW production line after training a group of students to describe their work in English.
- Teaching an Executive to have the same confidence speaking English as in German.
- Seeing a student accept a well-paying job abroad due to improved communication skills.
I am happy to chat with anybody excited about UX, Service Design, and the design and development of sustainable products and services.
If you are working on projects that create positive social change, give me a shout. Let's use design as a force for good!
