Like many people, my path to becoming a UX designer wasn’t exactly a linear one. Before discovering my deep-seeded love of design, I spent time working for ad agencies, tech giants, and innovation consultancies in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.
It wasn’t until late 2017 that I finally decided to make a change. I’d spent the last 4 years working at Google and YouTube, taking on as many side projects with our UX teams as possible and had fallen deeply in love with building digital products.
I went home one night in early September, took a deep breath, and started to plan the next phase of my career. When I came across DesignLab’s UX Academy, everything fell into place. The portfolio work was impressive, the curriculum rigorous, and the timing right.
480 hours of coursework, hundreds of cups of coffee, and countless hours of Sketch later, I'm proud to call myself a designer. Hope you enjoy my work.
P.S. when I'm not designing, you can usually find me on a plane, headed to some far away destination with my camera in hand.
