A Bit About Me
I believe creating memorable experiences is one of the best gifts of being alive. I am passionate about designing and curating experiences to help immerse a person in the moment. I am a devoted husband, a loyal friend, a brave adventurer, an empathetic stranger, and a fun-loving person, who tries to take time to enjoy the little things in life.
As an Architect turned UX designer, I have over 10 years of experience creating visceral experiences for users using design thinking and human-centred design, with the past 4 years spent working with the tech industry. My personal brand of design meets at the crossroads of intellect and emotion, forming a happy marriage of enjoyable and intuitive solutions.
