In 2009, I graduated with an honours degree in Design (BDES) from York University and Sheridan College Institute of Technology. Before beginning my career, I was inspired to design a networking system for the subway of Toronto that aimed to improve commuter experience. It was awarded in the ThinkToronto Urban Design Ideas competition, and subsequently published in Spacing magazine as well as displayed at the Toronto City Hall, and featured on CBC national radio, Spark. Shortly after, I began my career as a Web Designer at Club Penguin, Disney’s Online Studio in British Columbia.
At Disney, I worked on high profile projects, during which I filed a patent for a new way to authenticate users, earning my first Disney Inventor Award. A few years later, I made a move to Toronto and began working as an Information Architect at Publicis Groupe, a notable advertising agency, where I gained experience working on UX for world-class brands. In the last two years, my skills and talents grew rapidly as I handled the responsibilities of a Sr. Information Architect at Kobo, the eReader start-up.
With over 7 years of experience, I am ready take my out-of-box thinking, passion for design and knowledge of UX to a product I believe is essential for human well being and a better society.
