Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I am a Product Designer in Toronto focused on creating meaningful design solutions and experiences for brands and audiences. I'm a relationship-oriented individual and a problem-solver by nature. I love connecting with and understanding people! I perform my best in a collaborative, team setting. I truly thrive in culturally and creatively diverse environments where building-relationships and supporting your team are part of the core and reinforced values.

I come from the Experiential Marketing (XM) industry with a visual and environmental design background. At the University of the Arts London (UAL), I studied Design Management with a specific focus on UX/UI, human-centred design, Design Thinking and service innovation. My design career pivoted to digital and UX/UI design while conducting extensive 18-month research and completing a Master's degree.

I'm always trying to grow and learn something new. I LOVE travelling and meeting new people and making friends. I love anything related to good design and fashion! My hobbies include having great conversations over coffee (and butter croissants), long walks while listening to audiobooks and podcasts, photo blogging, and sometimes painting. 

Currently, I'm looking for new opportunities. I am also always open to fun side projects. Please don't hesitate to reach out - like I said, I'm always happy to chat about tech, design, fashion, art and food!
